Dear friends and colleagues, 

Thank you to everyone that came to see the premiere of Wishful Beginnings at Black Box Theatre. We had some really nice days playing our last performance which has become a visual, mind-blowing inferno/after party. This time we are touching some deep themes in our times and at the same time we have explored and gone further with the visuals. Never has so many people been so deeply touched afterwards as in Wishful Beginnings. One could say that Wishful Beginnings is the proposal of what we are talking about in our previous performance Beat The Drum: Walk. For those of you that could not make it to Oslo we´ve made a documentation (but we hope to see you at one of our shows soon):

Full length documentation of Wishful Beginnings by Verk Produksjoner. English subtitles. 
"From the idea of people’s extinction, Verk Produksjoner make strong theatre. (...) A masterful theatrical moment, which ends an apocalyptic after-party you should not miss." Aftenposten
"In their new performance “Wishful Beginnings”, Verk Produksjoner tie the private together with the global and universal, and share stories about the future. With and without hope." Dagsavisen
“At its best, Wishful Beginnings opens for an associative experience, where the relatively simple texts become an entry into one’s own thoughts about humanity and where we are heading. The exaggerated theatricality twists our common references, challenges us to make new connections, and to see ourselves in a new perspective. (...) Wishful Beginnings is an ambitious performance, daring to ask the bigger questions, and that succeeds in elevating everyday texts onto a highly artistic level." Klassekampen
"Wishful beginnings is a visually strong experience (...) Seen from the audience’s perspective, Wishful beginnings is a comfortable inferno to be part of. It strikes me, more than ever before, how skilful Verk Produksjoner are - on a technical level. Both as performers, with an impressive presence and assurance, and as composers of material. " Scenekunst
