Radio Exit Live

A man wakes up, listens to the announcement of a crime on the radio and figures out that he has been killed. His body starts a surreal journey where the radio talks back, where advertisements come alive and soap-opera voices walk around as real people. He finds himself dead, back in the circus of his past life – and no exit.

Radio Exit Live is a performance with puppets and a multidisciplinary cast. In collaboration with Figurteateret Stamsund (the Nordland Visual Theater) Norway.
