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.



January 16th, 2022

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.

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….
