Winter Guests

winter guests is an international touring company performing works by Alan Lucien Øyen from Bergen, Norway.
winter guests tells stories of the contemporary world with words, video, music and movement.

The works are often 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, eccentric and entertaining performances in a constantly shifting format.

Described as "sincere and emotive", the performances have won several awards and engaged audiences and critics alike. 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.

winter guests has been closely associated with BIT-teatergarasjen, and as of January 2013 Alan Lucien Øyen has been Artist in Residence at the new Norwegian Opera House in Oslo, a commitment that extends to winter guests as a company.

The company is currently involved in a series of productions premiering 2015/16, among them Simulacrum. The work features 75-year-old Japanese flamenco legend Shoji Kojima in a polyphonic theatrical event that mixes opera, contemporary dance, Flamenco and Kabuki. Alan Lucien Øyen also continues to create commissioned work ranging from dance to film and theatre.

The company receives annual funding from The Norwegian Arts Council.
