    More about Hannah

    At the webpage of Verdensteatret the following, among other things, is written about om Hannah:

    "Verdensteatret's new production will premiere as a live performance at Oslo's Henie Onstad Art Centre during the Ultima Festival in September 2017. In this brand new work, Verdensteatret will explore ideas about geological time and attention fatigue. As they put it:

    'There has never been so much past as there is right now.'

    In November 2016, the Verdensteatret collective went on a research trip to the Mekong Delta in Vietnam, a location they first visited ten years ago. Their research, in a place they were already familiar with, was particularly focused on the nature of repetition, and they began questioning whether repetition is even possible. In their piece for Ultima, Verdensteatret will create a series of elaborate audio-visual compositions - generated via an electronic feedback system - designed to absorb the audience into the performance space. Inspired by the immense span and slow unfolding of geological time, the material acts as a kind of sedimentation process, drawing attention to slow changes and the way physical objects can affect their surroundings over extremely long time-spans.


    The presentation at Henie Onstad Art Centre is a collaboration between: Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music FestivalHenie Onstad Art Centre**, Black Box Teater and Verdensteatret.

    Verdensteatret is supported by Arts Council Norway.**"
