World premiere of a real SPECTACLE!

We at Kanon Produksjon are thrilled to share the news that on June 7th, we will take over the grand stage of Southern Norway, the theatre hall at Kilden Theatre and Concert Hall. The brand-new production SPECTACLE, written by Jon Erik, will be our next show, and we’re very excited about it!

In SPECTACLE, the fate of the local theatre is at stake. In hopes of saving her beloved workplace, producer Henriette, a busy and optimistic soul, has hired the renowned director David in hopes of drawing the audience back to the theatre, unaware of the content of the upcoming production. The belief that the theatre will flourish with the well-known artist at the helm is strong, but the challenges become evident when the director’s vision proves to be unclear, especially with the season launch only hours away. Kåre, one of the house technicians, becomes an unlikely hero and a necessary key figure in the director’s creative chaos. His insight into both the theatre and the “common people,” along with his practical skills, becomes crucial to realising the vision, even though he doesn’t fully understand what it entails. In the aftermath of the chaos, where artistic ambitions collide with reality, these three characters must find a way to balance their differences to collectively save the theatre’s future.

The performance sheds light on the theatre and cultural industry, the audience, “most people,” and on the society we live in. On stage are Jon Erik and André, along with Miriam Myrthel Pedersen and Fredrik Landmark, both from Kristiansand. Directed by Martin Næss Hald. The performance is produced by Kanon Produksjon, has a duration of 90 minutes, and will have its world premiere in the Theatre Hall at Kilden, in collaboration with Kilden Kultur.
