Passage Nord Project produced visual performances without text, near dance, from 1986 to 1992. The dancers were then performers. From 1992 text became an element in the performances and since then the performers have been actors and dancers. The texts have been fragmented scripts based on several types of text; poetry, philosophy, drama and facts.

Since 2008 Passage Nord Project has become increasingly oriented towards documentarism. The performers perform with their own texts, their own stories, and they are humans without any background from performing arts.

Passage Nord Project has toured and performed at festivals, theatres and art museums all over the Nordic Countries, the Baltic Countries, Poland, Japan, England, Egypt, USA, Italia, Spain, Austria, Croatia and Germany.
