Visit «Hardly Ever» at Wee Company:


“Hardly ever” explores the notion of truth and lies in theatre and everyday experience. The work plays with the gap between creating expectations and allowing the unexpected. Presenting the juxtaposition of physical responses to verbal statements, where the slight mismatch opens for new associations. Involving the body as cartography of the space and using the voice, singing and talking, with a significant text that informs with its meanings and affects for what it evokes.

Between 2015 – 2023 Hardly Ever was performed in theatres and festivals Norway, Romania, Sweden, Japan, Estonia, Cuba, Canada, Croatia and UK.
