Press review

Thor Sannæss, Minner for de store og lek for de små?, 12.11.2007, Scenekunst.no:
"...a well-made production at many levels: The craft is aptly done, from performers with effectful costumes and masks, mastering the physical, expressive acting style as well as the sweepingly great dance, to the simple, efficient dramaturgy swinging from the silent and sober to the playful and sparkling in appropriate doses."

More about På besøk* (Visiting)

The performance in På besøk* (Visiting) by Torgunn Productions takes place in a dark attic and among the old objects three forgotten humans are found.

These are the old lady with the sensitive nose, collecting memories, the man with the hat who likes to play, and the forth-storming woman who easily stumble. They collect, remember, play hide and seek, challenge each other, rhyme and dance charleston until they are ready to embark on the journey which will take them further. They are visitors in life.
