Trond-Viggo Torgersen and Kristopher Schau answer all your questions about body and soul in this lighthearted show where the answers are not always so predictable.
Welcome to a question time which is out of the ordinary. At last, it’s possible to ask absolutely anything! Trond-Viggo Torgersen and Kristopher Schau come along with their popular question show and answer candidly all the audience might wonder about concerning the festival theme KROPP – and questions on anything under the sun. All questions are discussed and answered lightheartedly and half seriously from the stage. Now is your chance to ask what you’ve always wondered about, but which you can’t ask your family!
NB: The audience is encouraged to prepare some questions in advance!
The concept Why is that? is stunt theatre, extreme theatre sport and mental bungee jumping. And one thing is certain: Torgersen and Schau’s question show is not for actors who cling to the script and hate improvising. The idea is very simple: Trond-Viggo comes on and then, after a little hilarious standup, introduces Kristopher. From then on the focus is the audience, and the public is invited to ask about absolutely anything – except things we already know the answers to.
– Of course we’re nervous, but that’s also part of the charm, that this isn’t quite safe. The underlying assumption is, well, that people want to have fun, and that makes everything much simpler. We run a very informal show, and when we have first established contact with the audience, I don’t think it matters so much whether we’re in a canteen, a theatre or a pub or anywhere else in the area. But anxious we always are, says Trond-Viggo, who despite nerves looks forward to meeting the public during the St. Olav Festival.
Those who have no reason to be apprehensive are members of the audience.When the show is well underway, the explosions of laughter make it difficult to think.
