Nagelhus Schia Productions

Nagelhus Schia Productions was founded in 2017 as one of the three Norwegian dance companies with permanent public funding. Founder and Artistic Director Guro Nagelhus Schia and Assistant Artistic Director Vebjørn Sundby have a long track record as dancers, choreographers, and actors. Over the past two decades, they have toured nationally and internationally, working with some of Norway and the world’s most acclaimed contemporary dance companies and choreographers.  The company’s mission is to create, produce and promote dance productions of the highest quality on an international scale by inviting national and international choreographers – both renowned masters, as well as emerging innovative artists to create new works. The company will also deliver a vast array of education and outreach projects, intensive training, and apprentice schemes. In addition to the funding from Viken fylkeskommune, the company is supported by Talent Norge, Sparebankstiftelsen, and Bærum Municipality.

The company is based in Studio NSP in Sandvika, Norway.

You Know This Song
Everybody carries a tragic fragility, an unwavering strength. While each individual story varies, there is a deeper narrative we all share.  Tom Weinberger’s You Know this Song is a highly physical, theatrical dance piece that leans into tragedy, loss, and the beauty that lives in grief. It invites us to recognize and sit with the shared experience of being human. Bleeding together fragmented portraits, familiar lyrics, movement, and a strong cinematic aesthetic, the work offers a window through which we can see our own reflection, traveling through the vast landscape of emotions. 

The melody shifts, the lyrics change, yet we all know this song. Click here for details.
