Like a Greek choir
I will let my body
reclaim it
chant
the word

Let it ripple
      quake
     heave
         flow
and just before
it disappears
take it back:

As a feminine man I grapple with an external and internal conflict between the feminine and the masculine, a conflict that exists in my body. I want to dig deeper into my personal experience in order to uncover the contradictions and uncertainty I carry with me. This is the battle I bring to the stage. As tragedy. Magnus Myhr

Magnus Myhr has performed in both dance and theatre productions since 2007. His own work is based on personal experience and concerned with themes relating to adolescence, the performance of gender and the innate vanity of human beings. IN THE DISTANCE, TROY is his second production. In 2014 he created the solo I SAT ON A ROCK AND LOOKED OUT AT THE “OCEAN”, which has been presented at Teaterhuset Avant Garden, Black Box teater, RAS – regional arena for samtidsdans and BIT Teatergarasjen. It received the Trondheim prize 2014 for performing arts production of the year at the annual NATT&DAG awards.
