More from the cold cold north

We have working more on North North North, in particular the part of the story where the three explorers are stuck on the ice... And try to pull their sledge 350 km before the winter closes in around them.

We also went out on the frozen lake again today and tied to pull Margit over the frozen bank of snow. More on this to follow.

North North North

We have been doing more work on North North North at our residential space in Dikemark just outside Asker in Norway. These are some pictures of our rehearsal room.

The weather has also been amazing with lots of sunshine, some snow, and some very cold nights (-12). We went out for a walk on the frozen fjord and tried to reproduce Andree's march over the ice flows....

Heading North to Norway

On Sunday we start rehearsals for North North North - a new touring show about the true story of an ill-fated polar balloon expedition to the North Pole.

Our set designers Bicat&Rigby have been preparing some props and materials for us to work with in the devising process and they have now been packed up and ready to be sent from the UK to Norway.

Alex and Martin are flying out from the UK, Margit from Denmark and Elke from Belgium and will all arrive before the packages do travelling by road.

We have three weeks in Oslo before coming back to the UK to work at the North Wall Arts Centre and Key Theatre in April for the final development.
