Out with the old

It's the end of the year.
So what did we do in 2009?

In January, we organised a seminar in Kanonhallen in Oslo, where we performed Everything Falls Apart and the Trilogy. People from all over Europe came over to see our new show and to discuss theatre for/with young people. From Oslo, I drove to Parma, where we played The End of Everything Ever and Past Half Remembered. This was the first time we performed in Italy.

In February, we toured some UK venues with The End of Everything Ever.

In March, we rehearsed and opened Das Schiff on the steamboat Schönbrunn in Linz. We worked together with our friends from Sgaramusch, and made the show as part of Linz09 and Schäxpir.

In April, rehearsals started for Berlin 1961, a co-production with Junges Ensemble Stuttgart. At the same time, we were still playing Das Schiff in Linz. We also brough Everything Falls Apart to Stuttgart while The Song of Lost Treasures toured Norway.

In May, The Song of Lost Treasure continued its tour in Norway and Berlin 1961 continued rehearsals in Stuttgart to open in June.

In July, Das Schiff played throughout the Schäxpir festival in Linz. At the end of July we rehearsed My Life with the Dogs to get ready for Edinburgh.

We spent all of August in Edinburgh to play My Life with the Dogs at The Pleasance.

In September we went all the way to the North of Norway with My Life with the Dogs, and then travelled from there to Horn, Prague and Jindrichuv Hradec with Everything Falls Apart.

In October, My Life with the Dogs went to the UK for a two week tour, while The Song of Lost Treasures toured in Vestfold in Norway. Berlin 1961 played was on in Stuttgart.

In November we crossed the Atlantic in a cargo ship as part of R&D for Tales of a Sea Journey and The Song of Lost Treasures toured in Norway.

In December, Berlin 1961 played in Stuttgart and we did the first two weeks of development of Around the World in 80 Days at BAC in London.
