More about Garage

At the webpage of The Touring Theatre of Trøndelag the following, among other things, is written about Garage:

"With Garage, we wanted to make an immediate performance with another theatre aesthetic than what is most often associated with theatre for children. Through humour and fascination, we awaken curiosity in mechanics and creativity. A performance where the poetry lies within the ugly and unpolished, not in the aesthetically beautiful and pure.

Garage was developed in collaboration with Cirka Teater in Trondheim, and it has its world premiere in our new theatre venue September 9. Next, we go on tour, first in Northern Trøndelag the autumn of 2017.

There is no dialogue in the performance, but there is a lot of mechanics. The smallest process can be solved through major processes. As a result, this is a production for all nationalities."

At the website of Bergen International Festival the following, among other things, is written about Garage:

"Two men, a chicken, and a great many machines.
In a messy workshop, there are two mechanics in dirty overalls. With immense fascination and passion for everything that ticks and moves they have made machines that will solve the challenges they meet in their everyday life.

These two men share their workshop with a chicken. Every day she provides food for the workers: a beautiful fresh egg. But what happens if the chicken should one day suddenly lay several eggs, or suddenly disappear completely?

Garage is a messy and humorous theatre performance about creative fever and humans as creative creatures."

Garage was produced with support from Norwegian Culture Fund (Arts Council Norway), the municipality of Trondheim and Spenn.
