D.I.Y - Manual for a potential future by STATEX at Festival Trajectoires

22.01.2019 - 23.01.2019

Stereolux
Nantes (F)

Today, our society suffers a future crisis. It seems nearly impossible to imagine a society radically different form the existing one. We are trapped in the realities of the present. The project DIY or manual for a possible future, is based on recognition that the world can not change if we are unable to think about new futures. More than ever, we therefore need utopias. 

‘The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can never be made or destroyed
Sunlight transforms into trees, 
trees become oil, 
oil is oxidised into CO2.
Nothing is lost
Matter and energy transform endlessly in various states
All matter and everything that ever will exist
exists already.' 

Performance by and with installation artist Lawrence Malstaf, dancer / performer Liv Hanne Haugen, playwright Tale Næss, musician / performer Amund Sjølie Sveen and director Jon Tombre.

NORDTING

24.08.2018 - 25.08.2018

RakettNatt
Tromsø (NO)

You never really know what will happen when Amund Sjølie Sveen and his comrades enter the stage. Well, one thing we know; he swings his verbal ammunition high and low, left and right.
NORDTING is more a public meeting meets standup meets political meeting meets concert meets performance than anything else. Actor, writer, journalist and musician Amund Sjølie Sveen is known for making stage productions aiming directly at the elite; the people with power and money. He also questions the position of art itself in today's society.
NORDTING is lead by Amund Sjølie Sveen with Liv Hanne Haugen and Erik Stifjell and various local guests.

Premiere 'State & Ecstasy'

24.05.2016

FESTSPILLENE I NORD-NORGE
Harstad (NO)

'State & Ecstasy' is a performance with dance, installation, music, poetry: five artists dig into collectivity, both politically and existentially. The result is a subjective and beautiful examination of individualisation and freedom, and a fervent desire - both in art and politics - to achieve a collective ecstasy.

With Amund Sjølie Sveen, Lawrence Malstaf, Jon Tombre, Liv Hanne Haugen and Tale Næss.

FINN, Harstad (NO)
