2019: Project group Woon
The South Korean Theatre company Project Grop Woon came to visit Rjukan in November 2019, to research hydrogen energy production through the guidance of local expert Bjørn Iversen.
With perspectives from the Unesco World Heritage site Rjukan, Norway, they started research into Hydrogen Energy Production, in order to develop a theatre play on this topic.
Hydrogen, both the main component of the sun and the most abundant element in the universe, is also one of the elements that will be very important in the energy mixes of the close future, replacing fossil fuels.
Project Group Woon is an artist group that deals with the pain and healing of a community. 'Woon’ is the Korean pronunciation of a Chinese character, ‘雲’ and it means ‘cloud’. But it often is used to describe a group of people. ‘Woon’ is chosen as the Project Group name because it symbolized the values which the Group pursues.
During their stay in Rjukan, they also performed an interactive theatre performance with local children of the age 6-8 at Rjukan Barneskole.
