RukRuk Company

RukRuk Company is a group of artists based in Norway. The company creates visual experiences and productions that appeal to the viewer’s senses, emotions and imagination. Their work is characterized by the physical theater and the artists’ background in theatre and dance. In an ongoing manner they experiment with their physicality, movements, actions and relationship with space in order to propagate a cultural dialogue between the performers and their audiences.

The company is founded as an artist collective with artists from different parts of the world and their artistic proposals are always influenced by this fact. Their multicultural backgrounds invite to openness for divergent cultural expressions and enrich their productions with diversity at the same time as it forms a cohesive artistic identity that can be seen in all of their work.

The company works with different kind of productions:

  • Performance in a conventional theater

  • Performance in site specific and installation

Each project is unique and is intended for specific audiences.  Some of the performances are addressed to an adult audience while others are addressed to a younger audience.

In addition to theatre productions the company also work with educational activities:

  • Non Verbal Communication / Body Language courses

  • Drama courses

  • Body Expression/ Movement courses

About

Georgina Amat and Ivar Sverrisson, both actors and dancers, founded the company in 2014.  At the time they were working at The Norwegian Opera in Oslo, but they shared the same ambition to start a company where they could creatively produce their own projects. They aspired to create artistic proposals that were experimental and confirmative to their inquisitiveness and dedication to the art of theatre and dance. RukRuk Company was founded with this in mind and their experimental approach is still today a fundamental part of their work and identity.  

After a few months Sara Serrano joined the company as a founder, producer and dramaturg. Sara and Ivar had previously worked together at productions for Jo Strømgren Kompani and RukRuk Company became a place where they could continue their collaboration.

RukRuk Company premiered its first production “The Imperfect Adventures of Don Quijote” in April 2015 at Grusomhetens Teater in Oslo.  The project was founded by Kulturrådet and the Spanish Embassy of Norway.

 

After the premiere of their first production Caroline Lea and Joao Pamplona joined RukRuk Company as permanent members of the group.


The company has since then worked with numerous collaborators, some of which are members of RukRuk Company today.
