winter guests is an international touring company performing works by Alan Lucien Øyen. They uniquely create a range of pure theater works, dance works and hybrid pieces – all layered with a cinematic overtone enriched by stunning singular scenography. The works are based on real life experiences, sourcing material from interactions with strangers, personal anecdotes, and pop culture references – always incorporating the performers and the rehearsal process in the shaping of the final narrative.
Alan is also substantially invited to choreograph and direct for companies internationally. In 2018, he was the first choreographer commissioned to create a full-length piece for Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. In 2020/21 Alan will create new full evening works for Paris Opera, Opera Flanders and Staatsoper Berlin.
