“ A low-key situation report that says far more than many political analyses.” Amund Grimstad, Klassekampen

Elected one of the year’s best performances in 2018 by the Norwegian Shakespeare magazine.

Twenty years after being an exchange student staying with a working class family in the small town of Danvers (Illinois), Espen Klouman Høiner re-visited them in 2017. Based upon conversations with the host family’s mother Rose, Klouman Høiner has created the monologue VI, FOLKET (We, the people). It has become a poetic life story that takes us from adolescence, through life with young children who grow up to become their own adults.

Together with Camilla Vatne Barratt-Due and Signe Becker, Klouman Høiner has, as a counterpart to chaos and polarization, created a quiet conceptualization of the American dream or reality, with the white working class as his point.
