New Communities: The problem is not that of being free but of finding a way out, or even a way in, another side!

Our startingpoint in this workshop is how VERK works in the collective creative process; how meaning develops without our control and how the participants can keep their individuality and at the same time use the collective situation in their work. How interpretation and improvisation goes hand in hand and how to open up for the playfull and riskfull, emphasizing the event in the room.

We will seek in many directions aiming to open up the theatrespace to different discourses and truths.

We always question theatre as an artform. Why do people come and see other humans reenact themselves or others? What´s the social situation in theatre? And what to fill it with? Is theatre a ritual place? Is it necessary with fiction, does everything need to be understandable, what´s the difference between readable and comprehensible?



The Norwegian theatre-company Verk is known for their epic and vaudevillesque form of acting with satirical and political undertones changing swiftly between storytelling, acting and improvisation.  Their approach has always been to open up for all the possibilities in their work, mixing different styles and approaches that establish a strong connection with the audience with solid sense of here and now.

In addition to touring nationally, Verk has gained extensive international recognition in recent years, resulting in several guest performances in Sweden, Finland, Germany, England, Denmark, Iceland and Portugal.

VERK was founded in Oslo, Norway in 1998 by Saila Hyttinen, Fredrik Hannestad, Anders Mossling and Oskar Skulstad. Since 2003 the group included Per Platou and was followed by Signe Becker, Håkon Vassvik, Tilo Hahn and Solveig Laland Mohn.

On March 27, 2012 Verk received base funding from the Norwegian Arts Council. As of 2012 the company will receive annual funding aimed towards developing Verk as a production platform for the creation of innovate and exciting performances.
