⟨ jɑː↓⟩ – pulmonic ingressive explores the fatigue related to protesting the same thing over and over, and how the echoes over the Atlantic Ocean binds us all.  

Pulmonic ingressive describes ingressive sounds in which the airstream is created by the lungs. Despite being a common phenomenon, they are frequently associated with Scandinavian languages. Most words that are subject to ingressive speech are feedback words (“yes, no”) or very short or primal (a cry of pain or sobbing)Wikipedia

Essentially, it’s a piece about remembering to draw your breath.

Our Future Stories

December, 2020–February, 2021

“How will the pandemic shape our theatrical stories?”

In Our Future Stories, seven playwrights from the Nordic countries reflect on how the pandemic will impact the future stories we will tell on stage. The project is part of #UN75, the world’s largest conversation on our collective future and a celebration of the 75th anniversary of the United Nations. Each playwright joins this global conversation by writing about the future they envision.
