Projects

Since starting to collaborate Sara and Helle have created two projects together for the stage. Forming different constellations for each project, they are interested in investigative and research based processes, working in open and dynamic structures.

Their first production Eventyrlige Eventyr (Adventurous Adventure) is a multi-media performance combining dance, film, theatrical characters, fairytale storytelling with an original sound score. Eventyrlige Eventyr is a performance created for children (5-10 y) and is the first performance in a trilogy about the superheroinnes Snik and Snok and the evil shady shadow Skuggan. Snik and Snok are soon ready for new adventures; In Snik and Snok on the moon (planned premiere late 2010) they have to save the world from a huge flooding disaster and in From China with Love (planned premiere 2012) they are caught up in a complex net of dangerous alliances, intrigues and spies trying to save the world from a trade embargo that can have shattering consequences.

Eventyrlige Eventyr, the first performance in the Snik and Snok production series, has been performed in 5 counties in Norway stretching from Aust-Agder in the south to Finnmark in the north and been seen by more than 10 000 audiences. The performance will continue touring in 2010, and will amongst others be visiting the Ramallah Contemporay Dance Festival spring 2010.

Norma Jeane is their first full length performance. The project is a collaboration with visual artist Mari Meen Halsøy and sociologist Mari Sømme Hammer. The work was developed and informed through different research methods, working with the memory method and participating observation from sociology, lectures on feminism, studio work– exploring character development, movement vocabulary and use of text (vocal and visual). The project had an artist residency at Maqamat Theatre Dance in Beirut summer 2008. Norma Jeane premiered March 10 2009 at Teaterhuset Avant Garden Trondheim.
