Trust me tomorrow is a sensorial and diffracted experience where rendering is happening between the actual space and memory. The memory speaks to the ability or failure to get into each other’s heads. So, it speaks to self-consciousness, subconsciousness and other consciousnesses. Trying to find the railing, a guide, something to orientate by in the groping darkness. In a world that is folding back into itself.

Trust me tomorrow enters experiences of blindness from both lack of light and too much light. It is evoking the possibility of entering darkness as a space for projection, imitation and desire. The interior darkness of a camera and the bright crystalline interior of the eye are both sites of a learning process – guided by the basic attraction to bring movements into light.

«Trust me tomorrow» said something about trust that is impossible to capture in words, but which made it a performance I would like to experience again and again.
In «Trust me tomorrow», space transcends time and place. It transcends the theater and completely new dimensions arise.

Verdensteatret consists of video and sound artists, painters and poets, sculptors and computer programmers who together have developed an intricate audiovisual style. Their poetics is characterized by a dedicated long-term development, creating scenes of sensuous activity and an ongoing experimentation within different media which result in space related orchestral works. Their large scale productions are built from raw material collected during journeys combined with stories of the fragile human soul.

The works of Verdensteatret have been presented internationally in a number of art contexts and locations, such as art museums, contemporary music festivals, and theaters. Verdensteatret is an Oslo-based art collective founded in 1986 by Lisbeth J. Bodd and Asle Nilsen. Trust me tomorrow premiered September 2020 during Ultima Oslo International Music Festival at Black Box teater.
