More about Ferske Scener

Kristin Eriksen Bjørn and Bernt Bjørn were also among the forces behind Totalteatret. 

The textual work always makes the foundation for the company’s work. The first production The Guitar Man by Jon Fosse, was readily written when Ferske Scener started working with it. The second production Jeg er visst ikke helt klar* (I don’t seem to bee fully clear) by Bjørn-Are Dypås, was a collection of resonnating and essayist texts when the company started its work.

Ferske Scener aspires to deliver theatre using contemporary texts that offers a sober view on our present times, and create political theatre. Ferske Scener aims to be an arena where playwrights meet stage designers, actors, and directors in a lasting process inspired by contradictions. Ferske Scener wants to challenge the audience’s conception of the performing arts.

Ferske Scener produces one main production a year, in addition to readings and workshops. These are done in collaboration with other performing artists in order to deliver the performance in appropriate settings.

Switching between working with texts not formerly performed onstage in Norway earlier and developing manuscripts from the start Ferske Scener has continued.
