‘Hannah’ is the latest work by the Norwegian theatre company ‘Verdensteatret’, a hybrid of a performance, concert and installation, in which the entire space is being played as one polyphonic audiovisual instrument. Inspired by the gradual unfolding of geological time, the material acts as a kind of sedimentation process, drawing attention to gentle transformations and the way physical objects affect their surroundings over extremely long time spans.

In 2016, after a decade since their last visit, the artists returned to the Mekong river delta in Vietnam. Memories, the landscape and the gathered material inspired them to make ‘Hannah’, a performance that brings together everything ‘Verdensteatret’ is known for: kinetic sculptures, video and sound composition, and fragility as one of the elements that holds together their world, preventing it from falling apart.

‘Hannah’ is a slow, ever changing landscape that resembles a place where people have not yet arrived, or vice versa, have already left behind.

The performance is suitable for schoolchildren and adolescents.
