Stats for this track
Available from Experimedia.net. To put Norwegian performance art troupe/artist collective Baktruppen into a box could appear to be a contradiction in terms. They have always moved outside the comfort zone of habit, staging their events in tunnels, galleries, libraries and sports arenas -- just as well as the more traditional avant-garde theater houses throughout the entire world. Finally, they are ready for institutionalization -- on a record label. The result is yet another story -- the story behind their history over the last 22 years: 3 CDs with talkative, scientific, noisy, sentimental, ridiculously funny and plain and simply stupid recordings from a crew of artists that have energized every stage they have ever performed on. Three CDs recorded throughout Europe 1986-2008. Includes a full-color 32 page booklet with rare photos. Mastered by Tanja Khanthasotorn. Members: Øyvind Berg, Ingvild Holm, Per Henrik Svalastog, Bo Krister Wallström and Worm Winther.
