The first 9 minutes from a 20 minute performance by Bjørn Venø (Bjorn Veno) where he tells the story of how he inherited a Norwegian farm and why his two older brothers failed to prove their worth.
The story is a retelling of the Norwegian fairy tale "Askeladen som Kap åt med Trålet", where Venø has made subtle changes creating a story that layes between truth and fiction.

This show brings together 'work made live' from across the Royal College of Art. Taking place in the atmospheric warehouse space at Testbed1 in Battersea, the evening explores a diversity of performance work.
There is considerable renewed interest in this subject world wide and this is reflected across all the subject areas in post-graduate study at the RCA, with young designers as well as fine artists involved.
The evening showcases wide approaches which include body work, durational performances, spoken word, story-telling, musical performance, live installation and sculpture, rituals, and participatory practice.
