Counting to zero

The art school`s theater students, ”Samovarungan”, in group 3 shows ”Å telle til null” written by Kristofer Grønskag.

In our version we meet 14 teenagers on a train station. They are traveling at full speed into life towards the future, from always to always via the past and the present. They all have in common the need to be seen. But does one wish to be seen as who you are, or the perosn you are pretending to be? And who do you wish to be seen by?

The play is a part of the nationwide theatre project ”DUS – Den unge scene”

”DUS” wishes to promote new drama for youth written by youths, and ”Samovarungan” have chosen to take part in this project. ”Samovarungan” are playing at a regional festival on Hålogaland theater in Tromsø on the 17th of February, together with 6 other groups from Finnmark and Troms. One of the plays are chosen to be shown at ”Det Norske Teateret” in Oslo in May.
