Norwegian premiere and a new international collaboration

In September, we have the great pleasure of presenting a Norwegian premiere: DOG/ACTOR.

DOG/ACTOR consists of two short, explosive, and comedic plays written by Steven Berkoff. The production is produced by the English theatre company Threedumb Theatre, led by Stephen Smith, and had its world premiere at Pump House Theatre in Watford in 2018. Since then, the production has received positive reviews both nationally and internationally and has toured the biggest cities in England, as well as a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland.

Kanon Produksjon is now collaborating with Threedumb Theatre across borders to bring this exceptional production to Norway for the first time. The collaboration between the companies dates back to the acting school The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts in England, where Stephen and André were in the same class. Since then, a collaboration has been in the cards, so the hope is that this is just the beginning of a long and fruitful international partnership with several exciting projects, both in Norway and in England. In addition to the performance, we will also hold a workshop in physical theatre/mime, so we are looking forward to entertaining and exciting days in September.

The production is supported by Kristiansand county, Cultiva Express, and Bergesenstiftelsen and will have its Norwegian premiere at Teateret in Kristiansand on September 8th.
