Winner of the Norwegian Hedda Prize 2013: “Best show of the year”.

As part of their 20th anniversary, we present one of Verk Produksjoner’s most iconic performances, Stalker. The performance won the Hedda Award for Best Production in 2013. It is considered a cult classic, and has been performed at home and abroad since its premiere at Black Box teater. Verk Produksjoner’s work has undergone several different phases over the years. Stalker can be said to be a turning point in the company’s history, where the gaze is increasingly turned to a space that one longs for and seeks out.

In this performance, Verk Produksjoner reconstructs parts of Tarkovsky’s film Stalker. They contemplate the Zone, an area where the normal laws of physics no longer apply. Everyone has their own motive to enter the Zone, and it is said that if one reaches the center of the Zone, one’s innermost desires will be fulfilled. But when one finally reaches the threshold of this room, doubts arise – do they really want to enter. For who knows one’s innermost desires?

During three conversations with people Verk Produksjoner has collaborated with over the years, they will talk about various entry points in the performances and the practice. There will also be readings and bubbles.

Verk Produksjoner is celebrating its 20th anniversary after having produced and presented critically acclaimed performances at home and abroad since 1999, receiving warm responses from both press and audiences. The company is known for its epic and vaudevillesque style with satirical and political undertones that alternate between storytelling, acting and improvisation. Their approach has always been to open up all possibilities and mix different styles that estab-lish a strong connection with their audience and  an intense sense of the ‘here and now.’ From the start, the company has created a number of performances at Black Box teater, from Ifigenia (2006), The Eternal Smile (2010) and Stalker (2013), both of whom won the Hedda Award for the Production of the year, to Manifest United (2018).
