Requirements to venue
"Oil has run out, several disasters have hit the earth and the humans are now preparing to live beneath the surface of the ocean, in the empty oil wells. The year is 2480, the place is Stavgersand, and the humans talk in a compiled hybrid language. Here we meet the first person of the story, who tells about work assignments, thoughts and dreams for a better future.
Ane Dahl Torp and composer Sjur Miljeteig are together onstage again, after their collaboration with the success production The Hulder. The poetry work they are now to handle is counted among the 25 most important works in Norwegian history of literature: The 800 lines long title poem is described as an apocalyptical utopia, pointing to our day as much as to the future."
"The production of the year is an extraordinarily successful and coherent Gesamtkunstwerk, of rare artistic quality. Here, a strange, sombre and scary reality is described with a warmth and understanding that invites intimacy, understanding and mournful empathy. Based on a linguistically very complex poetic masterpiece, the production is also a piece of art in theatrical dissipation and bringing a text to life. It leaves us with a new, optimistic perspective on linguistic communication and the range we are able to understand."
"Throughout her career in Norwegian theatre, this year's winner has performed a large number of large and challenging assignments. Intellectually, emotionally and technically she has shown openness to the different genres' different qualities. The role she now receives the award for is one that she has, to a large degree, taken part in forming. In it she excels in a linguistically conscious, musical performance. She balances the universal and the characteristic, the timeless and the futurist. She shows curiosity, wonder and respect for her character, who is an androgynous everyman in a transition phase between organic life and virtual life."
"The auditive and the visual can be said to be the two elements furthest from each other in a theatre production. This year's winner receives the award for a sound image uniting the two, indeed through creating visual images through the auditive. His futurist sound image creates tangible as well as abstract spaces onstage, spaces the actor can interact with and act on. Thus the music and the sound effects become, like the winner himself, an important fellow performer onstage."
