Lisa Lie is an Oslo-based author, playwright, actress, director and performance artist. Pony of No Return (PONR) is a platform where Lie engage different artists according to need and interest.Lie draws upon choreographic and musical strategies for composition. Lie takes a holistic approach to text-based theater and performing arts, making dramaturgically multi-layered works in which a variety of narrative threads run simultaneously. A point of departure when creating a new piece is often the creative performer. Lie is concerned with recreating ties to a shared mythology and ritual practice, creating a different kind of compositional logic—akin to that of dreams and magical thinking, underlying the experience of the everyday. Lie has set up a number of plays at theaters in Norway and abroad, and her latest piece Vake is a mystical-theatrical line of events that unfolds for active participants. She has studied at the Norwegian Theatre Academy, Fredrikstad; the Iceland University of the Arts, Reykjavik; and the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts. Moreover, Lie has published poems, novels, and scripts, and in 2015 she received Heddaprisen for her concept, text, and direction of Blue Motell.
