NIE’s main focus over the last 19 years has been to explore the ideas of identity, norms and history based on documentary sources. In our new project Now We Are Here we have moved into the grounds of what once was Northern Europe’s most modern Mental Hospital, and that later became one of Norway’s largest asylum centers. Now the property is out for sale to become a luxurious housing area.
The performance is based on Dikemark’s history, as well as stories from people who have come to Norway for various reasons and are now starting a new life here.
Suitable for ages 12 to 100
With support from Norsk Kulturråd
Artistic team: Kjell Moberg, Václav Kalivoda, Iva Moberg, Ingeborg Larsen and Seda Witt
