Mandala Theatre-Nepal is hosting the Nepali edition of Norwegian production Territorium, Nepal in Mandala Theatre on 4th January 2020.
Produced by Øystein Elle/Capto Musicae, Territorium is a cross-disciplinary performance composed as an intermedial work, at the intersection of concert, installation, performance and physical theater by the artists Øystein Elle and Janne Hoem. It was premiered in Norway in 2016 and has since then been performed in several theatres and venues in Norway Japan and Indonesia.
