My name is Silje Sandodden Kise. I work as a scenographer and costume designer for theatre, dance and opera. I live and work in Bergen, Norway, but I do projects everywhere. I work with projects at bigger theatres as Den Nationale Scene (Bergen) and Den Norske Opera (Oslo), and at the same time I work with smaller projects in different groups and collaborations.
My main focus as a scenographer is to work with projects where the scenography plays an important role in the evolving of the dramaturgy and direction of the piece. I really like to create performances from scratch, and for the moment I specialize in projects that integrate scenography and music, i.ex. by creating set designs that musicians can use as instruments. Examples of this type of projects are “Magnet” and “Veggen”, and the project “Sustain” that I am currently creating together with the composer duo SAGN.
In my web page you find many examples of my work. I am sorry that the text is in Norwegian only. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you want more information in english. My email address is silje.kise(at)gmail.com.
