Verdensteatret cover
Description

Seeing the sound, listening to the images.

Today Verdensteatret is one of the most innovative companies in Norway. Their works are presented widely international in different art contexts and locations, such as art galleries, contemporary music festivals and theatres. They have developed a unique and complex audiovisual style, where sound spaces mingle with sculptural scenography and stories of the fragile human soul.
They say that their activity now has become a ”telling orchestra” that performs compositions in the “movable room genre”. Established notions of form or style about “performance” are more or less useless for these peculiarly captivating works of art.

Verdensteatret is supported by Arts Council Norway and other official art-foundations in Norway.
