In Carte Blanche's season program the following, among other things, is written about A Collection of Short Stories:

"Short stories - someone's demons, others' love, grief or drama - A Colletion of Short Stories is a philosophy of life.

In her fourteenth commission for Carte Blanche, choreographer Ina Christel Johannessen gives the audience an opportunity to get close up to the dancers. They tell different stories in the same way as in a collection of short stories or like a series of images. The dancers perform in a set designed as a long narrow street, with the audience sitting on single rows of benches along both sides. From this perspective, the audience is invited to share the dancers' stories and to invent their own plots for stories the dancers act out in front of them."
