Winter Guests

winter guests is an international touring company performing works by Alan Lucien Øyen from Bergen, Norway. They tell stories of the contemporary world with words, video, music and movement. The works are based on real life experiences, including original text, transcribed recordings and improvisations. The company often inserts its own reality into the subject matter of the piece - resulting in rich and eccentric performances in a constantly shifting format.

winter guests presents their avant-garde theatre and dance in both independent venues and in the context of opera stages.    

They have won several awards and gained international acclaim while touring over 20 countries for performances and residencies at places such as The Watermill Center, New York Theatre Workshop, Théâtre National de Chaillot, and Banff Center for the Arts among others. In 2014 they won the HEDDA award, the most distinguished award for theatre in Norway, in the category best written stage-play, for their epic 5 ½ hour long play Coelacanth. The piece also earned them nominations for best play and best director.

In 2018, Alan was one of the first two guest choreographers commissioned to create a piece for Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, which is currently touring the world. 

The company receives annual funding from The Norwegian Arts Council.
