• Lots of great articles and reviews of Det gule tapetet (The Yellow Wallpaper)!

    Bergens Tidene lists Det gule tapetet as one of the top 5 things to do in Bergen, and credits us with inventing a new genre of theatre! 

    NRK TV came to see us on set and wrote a great article about Marte Paulsen making her professional debut in an extremely challenging role. 

    Bergens Tidene came all the way up to the top of a mountain in Luster to write this article on the play.

    "mektig og imponerende" ("powerful and impressive") says Sogn Avis!

    Jeff Pedersen interviewed about the show, with a little recorded snippet

  •  

    Fektescenene vert meisterleg innstudert av Jeff Pedersen...i det heile er den plastiske elegansen suverent til stades gjennom heile framsyninga.
     
    The fight scenes were masterfully choreographed by Jeff Pedersen...and this fluid elegance reigned throughout the play.

  • Kritikk av Jeff Pedersen som "Kurt" i Sogn og Fjordane Teater sitt produksjon av Dødsdansen:

    Jeff Pedersen, i rolla som Kurt, vert vår mann på golvet. Pedersen er den eg trur på, både i språk og spel... Han viser ærlege kjensler når han vert overraska, forundra, skremd og sint.


    Review of Jeff Pedersen as "Kurt" in Sogn og Fjordane's Production of Strindberg's Dance of Death:

    Jeff Pedersen, as Kurt, was our man on the floor. Pedersen is the one I believe, both in his acting and use of language...He shows honest feelings when he is variously surprised, confused, frightened and angry.

  • Jeff designed and ran workshops on delivering presentations. These were part of a suite of training that enabled participants to design a captivating presentation and then deliver it with confidence. The workshop included feedback on their delivery style and experiences designed to enhance their own personal style drawing on a number of acting techniques. All workshops have been well received and in many cases have lead to repeat bookings. Jeff has worked on a number of one to one coaching sessions for senior managers required to deliver memorable presentations. These intensive workshops have included feedback on current delivery style and coaching on achieving a more assured, confident delivery. Jeff has accompanied managers to events where they were to present in order to prepare and then receive feedback on their delivery. Jeff developed a number of workshops for staff who were at risk of losing their job due to redundancy and were offered outplacement support. Many of the staff had not been in an interview for situation for years. These workshops moved beyond the usual CV writing to actually working with people on their interviewing skills focussing on their physical presence as well as their verbal answers. The workshops were hugely successful. Staff went on to find other roles quickly and we received terrific feedback on the confidence the workshops had given them.

  • I had the great pleasure to collaborate with Jeff, doing a theatre performance in a private home. It was in the framework of the design research program Ideal Lab that he directed, and acted with, a multiethnic group of professionals and young amateur actors, as well as a performance artist from Japan. Jeff is a three dimensional thinker. He put ideas into space, using sound, body and mind.

  • The different female characters are represented by a special dressmakers doll for each of them. Losnegård gives voice to all of them. It could have been chaos, but it is not. In Jeff Pedersen’s tight direction and set design the story is told clearly. It testifies to the skills of talented actors. Kyrre Eikaas Ottersen has a precise stage language. We speak of nuances. A glance, a little nod of the head – just enough to send the audience’s focus where it should go.


    DEI ULIKE kvinnekarakterane er gestalta med kvar si utstillingsdokke på scena. Losnegård gir stemme til dei alle. Det kunne blitt kaos, men blir det ikkje. I Jeff Pedersen sin stramme regi og scenografi blir historia tydeleg fortalt. Det vitnar om dyktige skodespelarar. Kyrre Eikaas Ottersen har eit presist scenespråk. Det er snakk om nyansar. Eit augnekast, eit lite nikk med hovudet, akkurat nok til å leie publikums fokus dit det skal.”

  • Åmot Opera Farm’s motto is “to look to the stars”. Jeff Pedersen has worked with direction and workshops for Åmot Opera Farm. The performance Viva la Diva is our most sold performance for events and parties. Together with the performers he has been able to convey Åmot Opera Farm’s essence within thirty minutes in a refined and witty way. Using Jeff Pedersen as a workshop leader with a focus on becoming a better version of oneself has helped lift our customers towards new stars.


    Åmot Operagard sitt kundeløfte er " å cende blikket mot stjernene". Jeff Pedersen har arbeidet med regi og workshops for Åmot Operagard. Forestillingen Viva la Diva er vår mest solge forestilling for event og selskap. Sammen med artistene har han greid å formidle Åmot Operagard sin historie gjennom 30 min på en rafinert og humorisk måte. Å bruke Jeff Pedersen som leder av workshop med fokus på å bli en bedre utgave av seg selv har vært med å løfte våre kunder mot nye stjerner.

  • I have had the pleasure of producing school concert programs with Jeff Pedersen as a stage director. His intuitive understanding of the dramaturgical possibilities in musical contexts enhanced the performance immediately. This was also much appreciated by the musicians. Although not being actors, they could still relate to his specific and skillful instructions, thus providing them with added self-confidence. I am looking forward to working more together with Jeff in future projects.


    Eg har hatt gleda av å samarbeide med Jeff Pedersen som regissør når det gjeld produksjon av skulekonsertar. Han har ei intuitiv forståing for musikalsk dramaturgi som løftar både innhaldet og prestasjonane i konsertprogrammet. Dette var noko også musikarane sette stor pris på. Dei kkje skodespelarar, men likevel kunne dei ta til seg innsiktsfull og presis instruksjon som også gav dei meir sjølvtillit. Eg ser fram til å kunne samarbeide meir med Jeff i framtidige prosjekt.
