The much-criticised “Manifest 2083” play, from Danish director Christian Lollike, is likely to premiere in Copenhagen in October before moving to Oslo.

Those involved in the theatre industry and from support groups for the July attacks have condemned the piece since it was first announced.

Meanwhile, “Manifest 2083” is not the only piece of theatre being created based on the assaults. There are currently plays under development in Sweden, the Netherlands and the UK.

Yoeri Albrecht, head of the Netherland-based De Balie cultural centre, told NRK that artistic projects help when dealing with events.

“I think the horrific events have to be worked with and commented on by artists. Otherwise we are not able to understand them.”

Another work, Norwegian Karstein Volle’s cartoon book “Better People” (“Bedre folk”) explores nationalism, but does not focus on Breivik.

“The problem, of course, is that someone may glamorise him [Breivik]. That ends up giving the guy what he was looking for, namely attention,” he said.
