The Nose is a fast paced physical comedy about a man’s desperate search for his runaway Nose, and the life the Nose has taken on for itself. Will Kovalyov find his Nose? Or is the taste of freedom too sweet? And will Kovalyov be destined to a long life with an extraordinarily flat space in the middle of his face?
Based on Nikolai Gogol's short story The Nose. The Nose premiered at the Mini Midi Maxi Festival in Bergen 2017 and are currently preparing a tour through Den Kulturelle Skolesekken in Norway. We are also playing open shows in Bergen. See on tour for more information.
THE NOSE is part of Scenekunstbruket - The Norwegian Network for Performing Arts for Young Audiences. Visit their site here for more information.
