Fem forestillinger om døden – a theater installation by De Utvalgte

To Norwegian theater company De Utvalgte, the awareness of death has long been a persistent underlying context and motivation factor lurking in the background of their work. In Fem forestillinger om døden, this awareness is given the lead role, and the audience is invited to a near-life experience, conveyed through situations and the reflections by people who are approaching – or have already passed – the only border crossing of any significance in the world.

Fem forestillinger om døden is a further development of Gammel, a concept by Ingeborg Eliassen from 2004.

The performance is dedicated to Kari Winge Onstad (24.02.41–24.03.20).

NB: The audience will be given face masks and headphones. Please arrive no later than 5 minutes before the time indicated on your ticket.

De Utvalgte consists of Kari Holtan, Boya Bøckman, Torbjørn Davidsen, Anne Holtan and Anne Gerd Grimsby Haarr. The company collaborates with other artists as needed. De Utvalgte deals with contemporary theater and their performances are hybrids between theater, visual art and performance. De Utvalgte has as the first in the world developed new technology that uses 3D film scenography and narratives. The performances often have a cast consisting of people with and without acting experience. This adds a dimension to the play with roles and identities, authenticity and theatricality. The group have received several Hedda Awards, latest in 2019 for Special Artistic Achievement for the production The Ship vol.5 – Short cuts.
