Open day at the workshop

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

Saturday, we invited the public to an open house at the workshop. It was a social event, and lots of people stopped by. Everyone that came, had to drill a screw into the fish, as a symbolic participation and ownership in the project. Old and young! The kids also had the opportunity to make their […]

One flew over…

Monday, August 14th, 2017

Experimenting with different stage elements for One flew over the Cuckoo´s nest. Opening in October by Bømlo Teater. But today was a creative meeting with the director and the producer. Such creative and talented people.

21 days to go: So many things have happened this week already! As you can see in the video above. Monday the light-rig was set. And we got all the pieces of the set onto the stage, ready for: Tuesday and Wednesday the carpenters and technicians got up the flying-system and the complete set. No […]

Hook´s hooks

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Did you think Hook only had one hook?!? Oh, no! He has several hooks, each with it´s own  purpose. Two of them are presented here. Made by sawing off the stem of plastic glasses, drilling a hole at the bottom/top. Glueing on the “tool” of desire, in this case a salad-fork in brass and a “whipper” […]

How to sew an emblem

Monday, November 28th, 2016

One of the Lost Kids in Peter Pan, is a former boarding school student. So he needs a proper school uniform. A dark bottle green blazer and matching skirt has been bought on eBay. I did want to add a little imagined school emblem on the blazers. A quick google-image-search provided the image, and I […]

The pirate-flag

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

For Hook´s ship we need a proper pirate flag! I know they are for sale, printed pirate-flags very cheaply. But I didn´t want a pre-fabricated dime-a-dozen black-and-white pirate flag. I wanted a handmade one, in softer colors, with softer edges. So I used a meter of plain, black cotton Then I made myself a “brush” […]

streaming the opera

Monday, November 21st, 2016

Saturday was the world premiere of Ghost Particles, an opera created in 20 countries all over the world. Coordinating the pre-recorded films and not the least all the live-streamings take a quick hand and a cool head. Luckily we were in good hands at TV Haugaland! Tor Håkon got us all smoothly through the delays […]

Sewing Saturday

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

My absence the past weeks are due to a total exam-hibernation. Reading, writing, studying and reflecting. Hopefully I´ve been able to write something reasonably sensible. Anyway. So now it´s full force forward on the Peter Pan costumes! Luckily I am blessed with some absolutely wonderful friends. One of them, Nina helped me all day yesterday […]
