Janne Robberstad

Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

ENERGIZE!

Friday, November 20th, 2020

This year´s Global Science Opera production focused on energy and sustainability. 16 countries participated, from 5 continents. In 60 minutes of song, dance, music, stop-motion, rap, symphony orchestras, puppetry, choir and theatre, the students perform their own creations teaching us about all types of energy, from kinetic energy to renewable solar-power. I am humbly proud […]

Art on the moon

Friday, August 28th, 2020

What a weird title you might think. But it is absolutely true! At least it will be in a couple of years. This image is from @euromoonmars and it contains 100 artpieces that will actually go to the moon! Each square artpiece is 1 x 1 x 1 cm, so totally it will be a […]

A real-life researcher

Tuesday, January 28th, 2020

Hello. My name is Janne, and I´m a researcher. The past years, as the market for new-built offshore vessels have gone down, and the shuffeling of jobs in the theatre-section has led to less (paid) artistic work for me, I have gone back to my “roots”. Taking all my experience and knowledge both from the artistic […]

Workshops in Porto

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Never too late to try something new, right? Like teaching composition-workshops to music-students!! I had kick-off session explaining what the GSO was, and challenged them to make the composition for the trailer for Gravity. Together with their amazing teacher, Oscar, they did it! I also held an eco-design workshop with the teachers, challenging them to […]

Sao Tome & Principe

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

Paradise. The most beautiful place I think I´ve ever been. With such beautiful and interesting people. Certainly one of the greenest. Both literally and metaphorically speaking. A small island-state, quite autonomous, ins West-Africa. Only 7500 inhabitants. That´s less than Bømlo! The rich nature was overwhelmingly beautiful. It was hot and humid and rich and green […]

One Ocean

This year´s Global Science Opera is all about the ocean, sustainability and climate change. Click on the poster and the fish will take you to the opera: It´s the first production that has been my responsibility as production manager, and I am quite proud of the result. 18 countries participated this year (+10 in New […]

CREATIONS international conference

Saturday, November 3rd, 2018

This week was the very last gathering for the CREATIONS project. “My” project, the Global Science Opera” is a flag-ship project in this giant EU-funded 3-year international collaboration. This was actually my first meeting with them, but I met some lovely people. Some I already knew, and some new friends and potential future collaborators. While […]

Amsterdam

Monday, May 7th, 2018

Only a few days in Amsterdam this time. But I had time to meet up with colleagues from Holland and make some GSO-plans. I also had the time to visit MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) and got to see a great Lichtenstein and Banksy-exhibition. After seeing all the colorful graffiti in Brazil and Chile, it […]

GSO in CHILE

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

I´ve only seen a small part of Chile: Antofagasta. I am here on my GSO-tour, to hold workshops in GSO eco-design (courtesy of HVL) . Antofagasta is one of the most exotic places I´ve visited. Exotic as in strangest. The people here are sweet and nice and have taken such good care of me, and […]
