Our Struggle on Tour

23 November 2022

During this week, students at upper secondary schools in Lofoten and Vesterålen will experience an exciting interactive forum theater based on the exhibition Our Struggle.

In the performance, the audience gets to make choices (or choose not to make choices) about what the characters should do, in a story inspired by the labor movement in Vesterålen, starring the historical figure Nils Olsen. Here, participation and how one chooses to use one’s right to make choices are particularly important.

This will be exciting, and we can’t wait!
