THEATRE AND DANCE PERFORMANCE BY
ALAN LUCIEN ØYEN
Alan Lucien Øyen
In Norweigian chorographer and director Alan Lucien Øyen's If we shadows have offended, the dancers will impress us also with their acting in a touching story about nostalgia, being lost and what it means to not grow up. In this creation, we find references to the Peter Pan Syndrome, Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream and more. The dialogue is in English (with Swedish surtitles starting 22 March on selected dates).
Alan Lucien Øyen's work as a director, choreographer and dramatist has met with great acclaim both in Norway and abroad. Last year, he received the Norwegian Hedda Award for his five and a half hours-drama Coelacanth, which he created for the Norwegian national Opera & Ballet where he is choreographer in residence. He runs his own company, Winter Guests, and been awarded numerous international prizes also for his choreographies.
