Grenland Friteater was founded in 1976 in Porsgrunn, Norway.
The purpose of Grenland Friteater is not only to make innovative, entertaining and thought provoking performances, but also to contribute to the development of a new theatre culture in rural Norway. A relevant, direct and challenging theatre culture that does not pay homage to theatre conventions and debate in central Norway. Our goal is to have a theatre that is so alive that it communicates across linguistic and cultural boundaries and is so strong that it is not broken by the random changes of trend.
No doctor for the Dead – an intimate performance based on the texts of the Norwegian poet Georg Johannesen featuring actor Geddy Aniksdal and musician Anette Röde Hagnell.
The performance highlights Georg Johannesen’s poetic texts and enhancing them with music and choreography, in a bold and expressive style. These are poems with a particular sensitivity to political and historical and social questions relating to war, peace, violence, destruction and death.
