VERDENSTEATRET are artists from different art-fields who work together and make live-art and other art-related projects.
They endeavour to use a collaborative process to deeply integrate different artistic disciplines into projects that bridge the gap between
artistic boarders.Characteristic for their work is that they are building exquisite links between seemingly incompatible technologies and materials. The experimental use of audiovisual technology in a close dialogue with more traditional and historic tools of artistic expression results
in complex orchestral works or space-related musical compositions.
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.
Verdensteatret got the Bessie Award 2006 in New York for "Concert for Greenland" in the category Performance, Installation and New Media.
We dedicate the award to our dear friend Per Flink Basse who suddenly died on 8 May 2006 in Copenhagen.
