The Other World – and how to get out of there

The play I have been working with lately got its name yesterday – THE OTHER WORLD is a piece about wilderness, civilization, care and control, and about someone else’s problems. Within the play, I explore the presence of wilderness that is juxtaposed with civilization through utopian and dystopian otherworlds – places of escape – andContinue reading “The Other World – and how to get out of there”

Too many working titles – a play in progress

First of all, thanks to Taike & Galway County Council for the support I have received toward completing this play, which, as the headline suggests, is without a name. The play will be an immersive experience with themes of civilization and wilderness, care and control, and their extremes. It grew out of talks we hadContinue reading “Too many working titles – a play in progress”

Wilderness and Civilization – Need and Thought

Last year around this time I got an email from a stranger asking to read my script that had been shortlisted for Alpine Fellowship Theatre Prize.

There is something about islands I find comforting, even when this poem out of my self-published collection might suggest otherwise. You can orderContinue reading “Islands – poem & thoughts”

Dissociation – a piece written for Glass Half Full Theatre’s weekly challenge for playwrights

Glass Half Full Theatre asked for a two minute monologue containing ten spesific words, and even when this wasn’t chosen as the weekly monologue, they did enjoy reading it – so you might, as well. Ten words underneath the piece. DISSOCIATION Brush teeth. Gargle. Make a pot of coffee. Eat toast, but it tastes likeContinue reading “Dissociation – a piece written for Glass Half Full Theatre’s weekly challenge for playwrights”

Last Day of November – and the last poem for now

I started to write this blog around 4th of November with the aim to write a poem every day. I skipped one day, but just because everything outside where I live was too beautiful to even try and think about how to reach anything similar with words. What I have learned is that I feelContinue reading “Last Day of November – and the last poem for now”
