A Moment of Silence (2019)
Text, concept, directing

Hestnes / Popović 
Rosendal Teater (NO)

In A Moment of Silence, Hestnes / Popović investigates the notion of belonging to a specific time, place and group. By playing with the concept of collective nostalgia and what details of history that are left untouched, they question how we define ourselves and how we pass this narrative on.

‘A Moment of Silence’ is a remarkably charming performance where Hestnes / Popovic with simple, but surprising means tell us something essential about being human. – Amund Grimstad, Klassekampen
Review from Klassekampen (in Norwegian)

The performers’ stories are constantly linked to central events, often wars, and thus strike a nerve in human collective history. -Eline Bjerkan,

There is a Noise (2016)
Created and performed by Marina Popović and Freya Sif Hestnes

Hestnes / Popović

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.
