The Scandinavian American Theater Company (SATC) introduces a new generation of Nordic playwrights in a series of

staged readings representing Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland, and Denmark, including Greenland and the Faroe Islands.


SATC is a collective of theater artists founded to provide Scandinavian perspectives through the new generation of Scandinavian playwrights and theater artists. SATC presents contemporary plays and inventive takes on the classics from the Nordic region, which includes

Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands. SATC is committed to strengthening the relationship between Scandinavia and the United States through collaborations and interdisciplinary artistic exchange that examine and challenge the cultural status quo.


Written by Jon Fosse (Norway, 2005) and directed by Sara Cameron Sunde (U.S.). Sleep follows the lives of a young woman and a young man as they grow from middle-age into old age. This is a beautiful story about love, disappointment, hope, and death in which Fosse

expresses how both the past and future are always a part of the present moment. SATC’s reading of Fosse’s Sleep is also part of their festival Norway Plays: Drama Beyond Ibsen.
