More about Desiring Machines

In Desiring Machinesby Erik Dæhlin a number of historical and mythical female characters, from ancient days until today are portrayed, through narrative fragments, realistic images, surrealist glimpses and leaks. Everything is part of the many-faceted desiring machine, the history or the body, connected through a stage collage in which the audience is one of the circles.

Supported by The Norwegian Composers' Fund, The Fund for Performing Artists, Arts Council Norway and the Norwegian Ministry for Foreign Affairs/MFA (travel grant/performing arts).
