What is it in your life you talk about, what are you silent about and what is it that you just do not bring any attention to at all? Some of these questions are the starting point of Haugen Productions newest work, I’m Digging into my Magnificent Trashbin, searching for my life, that will be premiered under the Arctic Festival in Harstad (NO), June 2018. The project brings together five experienced performing-artists from different cultures and background, that all are willing to search deep into their own lives to find the stories that have pulled them into the shape of today.

Interaction and performers that are willing to take risks, ensure this to be a performance out of the usual.

  • “Good performance art should tear down and twist the audience’s perceptions. I certainly think that this performance is capable of doing that. And then, when the applause has ended, the world is slightly changed.”
