We are delighted to announce that from October 2016, our Co-Artistic Director is returning back to NIE’s daily work after almost four years in the Norwegian county theatre Scenekunst Østfold.
ITV Anglia News had a sneek peek at the ‘Magic Mountain’ bunker in advance of our first open day at the site in September supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
This is a performance for younger audiences exploring the stories of young refugees. Their stories are difficult and amazing. We have tried to tell one of them in a simple and intimate way using live music, story telling, shadow puppets and objects in an immersive setting. We will premiere the show in October 2016 in Norway with further touring in Norway, Sweden and the UK in 2017.
