NONcompany attends the delegation NORWAY NOW 2022.
Adjust – Reconnect – Rebuild
The title for this years program is adjust, reconnect, rebuild. In light of the ever-shifting pandemic concerns, Norway Now 2022 focuses on artistic processes and opportunities for exchange.
Over the past decade, Norway Now – Performing Arts from the Northern Latitudes has served as one of the most important opportunities for North American presenters to discover a wide range of independent Norwegian artists creating rigorous new works in dance, theatre, puppetry, video, multidisciplinary, installation and performance art.
Due to the ever shifting pandemic situation, this years program will be a virtual one with live presentations and pitches from the artists on a zoom webinar on January 16th.
NONcompany has started the research for a new project with the working title HOPE/HÅP/HOFFNUNG. It will be a project crossing borders, categories and genres in the search for a new utopia.
“A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth glancing at, for it leaves out the one country at which humanity is always landing. And when humanity lands there, it looks out, and, seeing a better country, sets sail. Progress is the realisation of utopias.” -Oscar Wilde.

The power project: MAKT -an amateur night at Capitol Hill

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….

KAZAK: widunderbaum opens the METEOR festival in Bergen
15 october NONcompany has the honor of opening the international festival METEOR by BIT Teartergarasjen in Bergen. We do so with our new performance, the third part of our KAZAK trilogy, KAZAK: widunderbaum.
We are happy to announce that we will perform our second part of the trilogy KAZAK: kazak in Berlin. June 22, in Studio 1 at Ufer Studios at 20:00. To reserve a ticket please send an an e-mail to email@example.com.
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.
