At the webpage of zero visibility corp. the following, among other things, is written about It was November. The text is written by Siren Leirvåg, lecturer in Theatre Studies at The University of Oslo:

"What do our lives evolve around: sounds, objects, movements - memories? Within the frame of a seven days' intense and fragile gathering the people seem to not get out of the situation they are in. In an almost Chekhovian atmosphere of longing for a change the characters are apparently communicating with each other, but the dialogues are monologues in disguise.

We are all holding our breath and hoping for something to happen, which is underlined by the music, monotonous in an energetic way, making everything sad and beautiful, and almost calm.

The whole thing starts off with a disturbing solo performed blindly. What does she see? Something beyond the limits of the room? Some secret that will tear every illusion apart? One of the characters seems to be more aware of the freedom of entrapment, the possibility of multiple personalities: the lost child, the playmaker, the sympathiser and in the end the escapist."

Supported by: Arts Council Norway,the Norwegian Ministry for Foreign Affairs/MFA (travel grant/performing arts).
