Happy New Year!
Verk Produksjoner started this year in New York to be inspired, meet with friends and colleagues and present our work at the nordic meeting. Back in Oslo we are continuing our rehearsals on a new production to be premiered at Oslo International Theaterfestival at Black Box Theatre March 16th - 18th 2016. This year we will also be preparing for Verk's 20th anniversary in 2018 that we are looking forward to celebrate with a premiere of a new performance, a book launch and events. More info will be published on our website.
Up next is the premiere of Come as you are March 16th. The title for this show is inspired not only by the rock band Nirvana, but by a foreword explaining how to read the philosopher Baruch Spinoza by “coming as you are”. In other words, an open invitation to allow yourself not to understand everything, but let go, get lost and find your way back again.
For this piece, we felt a need to go back to basics, stripping everything down to the bones, revealing the expressive power of imitation and simpe gestures. We are searching for the small moments of joy: the joy of repetition, the joy in patterns, the joy of finding connections and the joy of imitating other people. Simply put, a panorama of unconcealed joy.
It’s a wish to exhibit simple human behavior: playing, showing, sliding, gesturing, imitating. Slipping into roles. Exploring our behavior, our shortcomings, our faults, our desires and, not least, our love.
We want the situation, the body at work, to be not only a representation of a narrative, but the narrative itself.
We welcome you all to Oslo in March. For more details on travels and accommodation contact our producer Pernille Mogensen: firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best,
