Performance: War Travels – Narvik

Hitler suffered his first defeat in the Battle of Narvik. Norwegian and Allied forces recaptured the city after fierce fighting, before the course of the war led to the abandonment of Narvik. One of the soldiers who left, a young boy from Liverpool, had to leave not only Norway but also the love of his life, a young Norwegian girl.

When the end approaches and the time for reckoning has come, what thoughts run through one's mind and what does one focus on? This is how the play Narvik opens. It is a deep dive into emotions, regret, love, friendship put to the test, and, above all, war. Two friends in an impossible situation. In a radio room on a warship, life changes forever. Black sea! Steel and water! Two young people are brought together and separated by the same war.


The Battle of Narvik

April 9, 2024, marks 84 years since the Battle of Narvik. Unlike in other parts of the country, the Allied forces withstood the German invasion in Narvik for an extended period. When the evacuation of the British forces was followed by the Norwegian capitulation on June 10, the Allies had, at times, dominated both on land, sea, and air. The Battle of Narvik has been called Hitler's first defeat in World War II, but victory slipped away at the end. It is strange that the Battle of Narvik has not played a larger part in our collective war history.

Narvik won "Best New Play at the UK Theatre Awards 2017."

The performance has a new premiere during Bodø2024 in connection with the cultural capital project War Travels, which seeks to dramatize the region's under-communicated and close war stories along the Nordland Line.
