How to. A score

Thursday 15 February At 10:00 – 11:30
VEGA Scene

"How to. A score" is an unusual production that embraces stories, voices and collaborations even when power structures prevent their physical presence. "How to. A score" generously shares and gives insight into environments that you may never get to (or be allowed to) become a part of, and for a moment they intertwine with each other, together with us in the audience” - Martin Lervik, The Norwegian Shakespeare and Theatre Journal

With keywords such as apartheid, gender identity, aging, disability, immigration and Black Lives Matter, six solos offer different perspectives on ecological grief, cultural panic and the feeling of collapse.
