Samovarteateret and director Bente S. Andersen have developed our own distinctive «Samovar methodology» to create performances;

In this methodology, different themes, ideas or stories from our border region are being processed and put into our present time.

Performing artists and collaborators from our international network are being engaged, and contribute with their own culture and artistic competence.

We often work with informers and time witnesses, which gives the process a greater perspective.

The result is performances with a trans-national idiom, where multilingualism, different cultures, newly-written text, movement and music is merged into a whole.
