CAN WE AGREE ON SOMETHINGS? - Research + Development

Multiple phases in 2019/2020 - Vancouver, Canada

The Scandi Noir project is no comment's first major project. This idea coincides with our new mandate and seeks to adapt the Scandinavian thriller genre to the stage to dissect social issues against a background of murder and secrets. Taking its lead from such crime writers as Henning Mankell, Camilla Lackberg or Ragnar Jonasson, and from TV shows such as The Bridge or The Killing, this new creation will be an experiment in form. 

It is the first phase of the Nordic Highway Project - the birth of a creative network which will link Canada, the UK and Denmark in cross-country collaborations. Further projects to be announced. Riding from the success of the Oh Canada! F(eh)stival, we hope to generate enthusiasm for international creative networks which counter the growing individualisation of today's society. 


The research and development phase is in collaboration with the HIT LAB and the House of International Theatre (HIT) in Copenhagen, Denmark. We would like to thank Michael Wighton, Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen, and everyone at HIT for their support.
