"Munch – a journey through dance, music and pictorial art", takes its inspiration from paintings by Edvard Munch: Solen (The Sun), Galopperende Hest (Galloping Horse), Ung kvinne på Stranden (Young woman on the beach), Melankoli (Melancoly), Løsrivelse (Separation), Stjernenatt (Starry night). Established choreographers representing different styles have made short ballets based on these paintings. Likewise, the composer has taken his inspirations directly from the paintings. Edvard Munchs thoughts is read by an actor. By the use of dance, music and paintings we have created a three dimensional performance, suitable for an audience from the age of 10. So far seen by over 50.000 people all over Norway. NEW: Available for International bookings.

Gloppen school

"This must be experienced far beyond the border of Norway"
Kragerø Avis (newspaper)
