More about 1980 - Aker Brygge

At the website of Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) the following, among other things, is written about 1980 - Aker Brygge:

"Statsteatret brings you to the 1980es and the song of the free market. We take you back to the decade during which profitability, emissions trading, corruption, inside trade and 'milking the cow' became part of the vocabulary. The decade during which off-white became a colour, and we all became Poco Loco.

We meet the brothers Wilhelm and William, following their adventurous journey through the stock market, banking and property speculation. Not least we follow the brothers' culinary journey from fish fingers at their mother's, to the meeting with Chinese, Indian, Vietnamese and Japanese cooking in 1980es' Oslo.

Welcome to Fame, Sweet Dreams and Dancing in the Dark. We had Faith and met many a Material Girl who wanted to Take on Me or Beat It. And if Eye of the Tiger stared at us, we stared back. We all have a Hungry Heart so Wake me up before you Go-Go, cause I see True Colors and I am Walking on Sunshine, so come on, Let's Dance!, Nothings Gonna Stop Us Now, Take my Breath Away, Cause I Can't fight this Feeling, Baby, I am Free - Free Fallin'! We didn't start the Fire, but we all took part in The Final Countdown."
