10 years anniversary 

K:13-Scenekunst (formerly Kompani 13) is celebrating its 10-year anniversary as an independent performing arts ensemble in Bergen in autumn 2023, and in connection with this organized a celebration where we both celebrated ourselves and our contacts, but wanted to look ahead in order to continue our work for new and exciting performing arts. We celebrated ourselves as a prominent stage company in Bergen, but also as one that wants to give something to the performing arts field in Bergen, and at the same time keep an open door to a general audience - with both art and knowledge dissemination.

Art Activisme

K:13 SCENEKUNST PRODUCES LATVIA'S FIRST INTERACTIVE PERFORMANCE FOR YOUTH.

 

In 2021, K:13 sought a collaboration with the Latvian artist Sanita Duka and the company I-DEJAS-MAIA. The project was supported by the EEA grant scheme for Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, in the category "Local development, poverty alleviation and cultural cooperation".

 

In collaboration, we produced the performance <<Lidzinieki/Demo-Creators>>

The performance premiered on 12 October at the House of Trade Unions in Riga.

ARR - silent songs

K:13 Scenekunst and Vestlandske Teatersenter aims to research young people's relations and thoughts about  to their lives and their future- before and now. Is it different being at the brink of their adult life in 2022 than it was in 1958? 
The performance is inspired by the interactive concept: «Community Theatre»,  where people who are not professional actors perform their personal true stories on stage within a professional framework.

TOWER OF BABEL/PLANET EARTH/GAME OVER/RESET

Tower of Babel/Planet earth/Game over/Reset
- an interactive adventure for young people aged 13-16, developed by artists from five European countries.

The action takes place sometime in the future, after the climate has collapsed. Humans live like animals in small tribes, scattered across the earth. 32 young people are admitted through four different entrances and become part of each tribe. The actors take the participants on an interactive journey where they take part in the action and have to make real choices and decisions together during the performance. The young people help decide how the performance develops and how it ends. For the participants, it will be like moving inside a computer game where actors guide them through the scenography.

In collaboration with The Norwegian Fisheri Museum, K:13 has produced the theatre play "Tørrfisk og tresko" (Dried fish and wooden shoes, which is a time frozen image of what happened in the harbour of Sandviken in the 1890s, a time period where there existed both dried fish- and herring trading. It is a walking theatre performance where the museum is used as the venue and scenography, both inside and outside.

ROMEO & JULIET

The performance Romeo and Juliet engages the audience by using  simple methods.

 

Romeo and Juliet is the most famous play in history and the strongest love story we know. The play problematizes how stupid and unnecessary war is, when love, understanding and friendship are in fact always a possibility.
