THE HOME EDITION

TOUR 2024

GET EVEN CLOSER!

The Home Edition is an artistic research, where Thomas of Norway brings repertoire out of traditional venues, and into private homes. The work is a part of Thomas of Norway's focus on sustainable art practice.

The Home Edition is aimed at private individuals and into private homes. Stage lights and dance floors are replaced with more everyday surroundings, in search of what choice of space does to the performance. Through conversation and dialogue with the audience, experience and knowledge is built that will contribute to the development of what Thomas of Norway's productions may look like in the future.

 

The Home Edition is part of Thomas of Norway's focus on increased sustainability. It involves, among others, not only producing new work, but also exploring the potential of the repertoire that already exists. 

 

In 2019, the performance When Boys Cry was tested in a private home for the very first time, with an interest to explore what a private space could add to the performance. In 2022, Thomas of Norway was touring in Nordland, Troms and Finnmark, where five performances was offered to private individuals through an open call. The project was very well received by the audience. Thomas of Norway is therefore pleased to announce another five free performances in 2024. 

 

WHEN BOYS CRY AS THE HOME EDITION

 

Home should be a safe place, but we know that many experience violence and abuse precisely in their homes. When a performance, which conveys the trauma, anxiety and shame after a rape takes place with someone's home as a stage, it is experienced that the discomfort is intensified. At the same time, it contributes to a unique context for the audience. The message reaches the audience without the filter that a traditional stage/venue can create. The performance is performed without recorded sound/music, and does not require technical equipment such as stage lights or the like to be able to be carried out. This version was first tested in Malmö (SE) in 2019, and has since been explored in private homes in Bodø, Tromsø, Tjøtta, Kragerø, Oslo, Rennebu, Stjørdal, Kabelvåg and Henningsvær.

OPEN CALL 2024

In 2024, Thomas of Norway is offering five performances. The project is reaching out to residents of Nordland, Troms and Finnmark, and the project runs between April 1th and November 1th 2024.

  • The open call has now ended as all performances for 2024 have been booked.
