Verdensteatret

Presented in association with FuturePerfect Productions

 
 

The nine members of DIY Norwegian art collective Verdensteatret—video artists, computer animators, sound engineers, musicians, and visual artists—specialize in a breed of performance that’s equal parts concert, theater, and installation. In Bridge Over Mud, a massive, immersive work that materializes along 195 feet of train track, the artists manipulate a micro-landscape of railcars and other kinetic objects to transform the Fishman Space into a dreamlike environment.

A complex system of more than 60 speakers are complemented by projections and shadows, plus a live tuba player and two vocalists, resulting in a hypnotic tone poem that charts a journey of infinite possibilities.

 

Created by Asle Nilsen, Lisbeth J. Bodd, Piotr Pajchel, Eirik Blekesaune, Ali Djabbary, Martin Taxt, Espen Sommer Eide, Torgrim Torve, Elisabeth Gmeiner, Niklas Adam, Kristine Sandøy,Thorolf Thuestad, Janne Kruse, Laurent Ravot and Benjamin Nelson

Bridge Over Mud is co-produced by Black Box Teater, BIT Teatergarasjen, Henie Onstad Kunstsenter and Ultima. Verdensteatret is supported by Arts Council Norway. US tour is supported by Performing Arts Hub Norway and the Royal Norwegian Consulate General, New York.
