SUSIE WANG is a Norwegian theatre group consisting of Trine Falch, Martin Langlie, Mona Solhaug and Bo Krister Wallström. After several years of collaboration, we came together as Susie Wang in 2017.
Trine and Bo are former members of the performance collective Baktruppen, who toured the world in the 90s and 00s. Except Martin, who is a musician, we all come from the so-called postdramatic theatre. Tired of reflecting the world in fragments, we have started to pick up the pieces and make dramatic storylines based on mimetic presence. Susie Wang likes theatre that takes fiction seriously and sides with dreams, hallucinations and fantasies.
