The power project: MAKT -an amateur night at Capitol Hill
Lise Risom Olsen is writing a new play for the company in collaboration with the American / Austrian director Christopher Buchegger. The project is about power, and deals with the themes of wanting power, taking power, and how power is being distributed and re-distributed.
The project is co-produced by Rosendal Teater in Trondheim (former Teaterhuset Avant Garden) and will have its premiere there 17 January 2020.
More information soon to come.
NONcompany in residency at Arts Printing House in Vilnius
From February 28th to March 7th NONcompany is in a residency at the Arts Printing House in Vilnius.
We are having a one week text laboratory where we test out, work with adaptions of material, do artistic research and write for our new project with the working title “Makt” (power). For this process NONcompany has joined forces with the Austrian actress Anna Rot and the German filmmaker and author Ben Von Grafenstein.
NONcompany has started the work with a new production.
Our new project has no title yet, but for the first time in the history of NONcompany we start with a classic. What will be left of it when we reach the end of our process is yet to be found out.
We start the collective work in a ten days residency where we workshop our chosen classical drama, together with other texts with the goal of ending up with the outlay of our own script.
The production will take place in 2018 over two more periods, and hopefully a premiere within the year.
More to come….

We are happy to announce that we will perform our second part of the trilogy KAZAK: kazak in Berlin on June 22. You are all invited to come. The performance is for free and you can attend by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In autumn 2013 the NONcompany took an expedition to Canada, as a continuation of our research through the worlds’ biggest biome on land: the taiga. We followed the Yukon River, as the gold diggers did before us more than a hundred years ago. Our aim was not to search for gold, but to explore an area where people came, took what they could find and left again. An area with more bears than people and with the freshest air in the world. The wilderness. We brought some of it´s soul back and into the theatre.
KAZAK: kazak is the second part of the triology KAZAK, an old Russian word for vagabond. It is an auditive and visual composition that plays with levels of perspectives. Film, live performed music and theatre blend in to one and other in this poetical performance with surprisingly serious undertones.
Date: June 22, 2015
Location: Uferstudios Berlin
KAZAK: widunderbaum opening of two festivals

Creation of KAZAK: widunderbaum
NONcompany is working on the third performance in the KAZAK trilogy: KAZAK: widunderbaum. This final part will be a visual, musical and figurative performance in the taiga spirit. In this surrealistic theatre-installation-performance we look at the taiga from the final angel; our fantasies. KAZAK’s thematic will here evolve around how belonging can be created and manipulated, evoked or lost.
The company is now experimenting with scenic elements, light and reflections, to try to create a “living” environment around the material. Next steps will be taken in a three week working period at Ufer Studios in Berlin in June.
