16/17 Season Artists | Verdensteatret Jun 22, 2016
Our season kickoff performance is un-describable, even by our standards. The intrepid artist collective Verdensteatret hails from Oslo, Norway, where they have been working for the past decades in a mix of music, technology, theater, and visual art. Bridge Over Mud is examplary of their mix of styles: a "movable room" complete with train tracks crossing and re-crossing the stage carrying lights and sound, projections that must be seen to be believed, and an encompassing soundscape resting somewhere between outer and inner space. This piece challenges senses of perception and time, allowing for dreamy visions and unconscious connections.
Bridge Over Mud will only be performed at two locations in the USA this season. We are incredibly proud to be hosting these amazing artists!
