Verdensteatret currently ranks amongst the most innovative art groups in Norway. Eirik Blekesaune will give an introduction to Verdensteatret’s latest production “And All The Questionmarks Started to Sing”, recently shown at EMPAC and DTW, and present an overview of the computer systems they use in their work.

Eirik Blekesaune, computer programmer from the Norwegian art group Verdensteatret, will give an introduction to Verdensteatret’s latest production “And All The Questionmarks Started to Sing”, and present an overview of the computer systems they use in their work. Verdensteatret is an art group based in Oslo. The group consists of artists from many different artistic professions making installations, performance art, concerts and other art related works. Characteristic for their work is that they are building exquisite links between seemingly incompatible technologies and materials. Verdensteatret currently ranks amongst the most innovative art groups in Norway. Their characteristic combination of advanced technology in a close dialogue with more traditional tools, results in complex works and space-related compositions. Their works are presented internationally in different art contexts and locations. Currently they are touring with their latest production “And All The Questionmarks Started To Sing”, which they performed at EMPAC and at Dance Theatre Workshop.
