There is a Noise (2016)
Created and performed with Marina Popović 

By Hestnes / Popović

Norwegian Theatre Academy

From the diary of a 16 year-old in 1945, to a child’s escape from war in Sarajevo, to Scandinavia today. There is a Noise brings to surface the research of how a personal story can find its place in public and the necessity of investigating the personal in our common history. The audience is invited to sit around a table while stories unfold around them in the midst of frying waffle ooze. There is a Noise is an invitation to a memory, an exploration of the landscape between what we know to be true, what we’ve heard and what we can barely remember.
