opHAV is a co-production by GLiMT and Teatret OM.
opHAV is a site-specific performance with acrobatics, physical theatre and live music about our relationship to the sea.
The crane stands on the quayside, solidly planted – the link between land and sea.
In the company of the crane and its operator we’re allowed to dream about distant horizons and new adventures. And we experience how we receive new opportunities and new people, who come from elsewhere, with curiosity, joy and distrust.
From the harbor, travelers embark into the world. And here we welcome new people and wares coming from foreign regions. The crane leads us up into the heights and all the way down to touch the water, and through aerial acrobatics in rope, slack rope dancing, live music and much more, the 4 performers give soul and energy to this story about our eternal yearning for new horizons.
