    More about Telemakos/Hjemmeinnredning* (Telemakos/Home Interiors)

    Telemakos/Hjemmeinnredning* (Telemakos/Home interiors) by Teatret Vårt had its world premiere in Ålesund March 11 2005.

    The production was no audience success. Only 491 spectators saw it, ending in ticket revenue of 37 640 NOK.

    In its annual report for 2005 the theatre wrote the following:

    "Telemakos/Hjemmeinnredning was a brave experiment, and despite a mostly successful artistic result and acceptable newspaper reviews the audience stayed away. The theatre quickly decided that the planned tour with this production would not be realised. Because of this the touring in 2005 is reduced compared to former years.

    (...)

    Telemakos/Hjemmeinnredning became the down of the spring. Not for that. The reviews were not bad at all. One may sum it up in saying one came pretty far artistically/professionally. The audience didn't want to see this production. The number of spectators and the numbers of the accounts tell a clear story.

    Audience failure is a dangerous thing in a theatre venue because it is so easily followed by others. Pessimism or a kind of depression spreads in the whole theatre when the audience doesn't show up. And the confidence between audience and theatre can easily be damaged."
