Trust me tomorrow enters experiences of blindness from both lack of light and too much light. It is evoking the possibility of entering darkness as a space for projection, imitation and desire. The interior darkness of a camera and the bright crystalline interior of the eye are both sites of a learning process – guided by the basic attraction to bring movements into light.

 A floating composition ranging from the quiet, elegant and introspective to a disturbed and fuzzy mindscape. An occurrence sequence staged in a calm room. Seeking to reveal an alternative time.

Trust me tomorrow is a sensorial and diffracted experience where rendering is happening between the actual space and memory. The memory speaks to the ability or failure to get into each other’s heads. So, it speaks to self-consciousness, subconsciousness and other consciousnesses. Trying to find the railing, a guide, something to orientate by in the groping darkness. In a world that is folding back into itself. 

Verdensteatret consists of video and sound artists, painters and poets, sculptors and computer programmers who together have developed an intricate audiovisual style. Their poetics is characterized by a dedicated long-term development, creating scenes of sensuous activity and an ongoing experimentation within different media which result in space related orchestral works. Their large scale productions are built from raw material collected during journeys combined with stories of the fragile human soul.

Their works have been presented internationally in a number of art contexts and locations, such as art museums, contemporary music festivals, and theaters. Verdensteatret is an Oslo-based art collective founded in 1986 by Lisbeth J. Bodd and Asle Nilsen.

Press:

  • HANNAH, the new piece from Verdensteatret, is a ceremony over bygone time and voids with feedback from its own flight recorders.” – Klassekampen on HANNAH
  • “The group transforms its stage or art space into a dramatic body, pulsating between its visual and audiovisual elements, and all the fragments that float by has a certain dreamlike expression.” – Klassekampen on Bridge over mud
