20.-22. of August Jon Erik plays, together with Ina Maria Brekke, the performance SCREAMS OF A BIRD… in Posebyhaven in Kristiansand. This year it’s 150 years since Vilhelm Krag was born in Kristiansand. Krag is known as “The southern poet”and was also the one who christened the region, which was previously part of Western Norway. His poetry is also the starting point for what became the first Southern folk songs. Based on Krag’s texts, a new theatre performance has been created with accompanying new songs.Read More

In 2021, we have the great pleasure of presenting a world premiere: KISSED by Helene L. Solberg and Nora G. Svalheim.
KISSED is a script that was developed by Helene and Nora as their exam performance on the acting course at Nord University in 2018. The following year, they were awarded a rehearsal room by the Actors’ Center and YOUNG TEXT at Unge Viken Theatre (previously Akershus Theatre), where the script was further developed.
We at Kanon Produksjon are delighted to have been awarded a grant and a residence stay at Kristiansand Art Museum, called Bjørneboet, which will take place in Kristiansand in week 50. Here, research and writing will be done on Kanon Produksjon’s first original theatre script, with the working title DET HELDIGE SKIPET, which translates to THE LUCKY SHIP.Read More
GJENKLANG – EN FØRJULSVANDRING is an audio-guided Christmas story that takes you on a walk through Kristiansand, which ultimately ends up in the heart of the city center. By taking advantage of the technological possibilities and turning the limitations of the Covid-19 situation into something positive, our aim is to stimulate and perhaps challenge the individual imagination.Read More
