One evening in 2013, Jeff Bush, an ordinary man living in Florida,

was lying in his bed when the earth opened and swallowed him alive. A sinkhole had formed right under the bedroom floor, and in the end the surface burst. The attentive Floridian might have noticed the tiny cracks in the woodboards and how the steps, from the door to the sofabed, had begun to resonate in a sinister way. But Jeff hadn’t noticed – maybe because something else was on his mind.

Maybe he was dreading life. Or stagnation. Maybe he was searching for himself and his inner voice. Maybe he was convinced that if he dug deep enough into this subject matter, he would find the real Jeff Bush, and with that, the reason for his nightly pain.

In Synkehull (Sinkhole) the audience is invited to enter different kinds of holes. The aim is to find new, sustainable strategies for handling fear and anxiety, and possibly a bit of hope as well. After all, a hole is an opening!

In Norwegian with English subtitles.
