Kirkenes - on the same latitute as Tromsø, but east of Istanbul. 1 km from the Barents sea, 12 km from the Russian border and 50 km from the Finnish border. It is equally as far from Kirkenes to Oslo, as from Oslo to Rome.
In over 20 years Samovarteateret has developed new-written drama. Our goal is to create unique, exiting and realistic performances. To achieve this we have developed our own distinctive Samovar methodology.
Samovarteateret had the honour of opening The Barents Dance Festival in Hammerfest 6.th of November, with our performance “Truth”.
19.th of October 2019 at 19:00, Samovarteateret has it's premiere on the brand new performance "De som tapte freden" in Kirkenes. The performance is also played 25.th and 27.th of October 2019. Also as school performances through DKS, and later on tour in Finnmark.
