    Press review

    Bjørneboe, Therese (18.02.08). Review titled Bakvendt teaterhistorie* (Backwards history of theatre). Klassekampen, klassekampen.no, 16.11.2010, http://www.klassekampen.no/artikler/kultur_medier/51167/article/item/null/bakvendt-teaterhistorie:
    "Nevertheless the actors perform with deadpan seriousness adding theatrical old-fashionedness to the performance, something which is both moving and involving an ironic distance. The ambiguity is introduced already when Trine Falch comes crawling in on stage as a bleating goat and in this manner attempts to call on the incarnation of tragedy’s origin, there and then, in Black Box Teater. Other times the actors ape the Dionysian dances, fool circles or marching with highly held, stiff legs."

    More about Kom og se* (Come see!)

    Kom og se - Teaterhistorien iscenesatt som hypertekstuell tragedie* (Come see! – The history of theatre as a hypertextual tragedy) by Trine Falch and Ingvild Holm: With their artistic perspective from the post-dramatic theatre, Falch and Holm in the performance found themselves in what one can call a theatre historic hangover. The two hardly remembered anything, and the basic idea of the production was to attempt reconstructing the dramatic events leading up to the moment. Hence the story began in obscure landscapes of forgotten rites and continued via ancient times to the middle ages – all the time with the Greek tragedy as a dramaturgic framework.
