Is* (Ice)

Is* (Ice) (2012) is a production by Levende Dukker. The production was made in collaboration between Levende Dukker and The Royal Norwegian Navy Band. Is is a zombie puppetry performance.


"A group of Norwegian adventurers and researchers are in the Arctic to find the remains from Roald Amundsen's last expedition. Far into the desert of ice is what they are looking for, but there is also an unscrupulous, hungry creature attacking the expedition member for member, killing them in the bloodiest way imaginable, leaving only trimmings. Eventually it is a battle of life and death, in which the point is to stay alive and no measure is too brutal."

*Not yet translated into English. The title within parentheses is the Norwegian title's literal meaning.
