Once upon a time

André Lassemo & Ellen Bendu

Theater – 6 – 12 years

The stage text is based on Norwegian folk tales and interviews conducted by young adults and their relationship to the tales they were told while growing up. What kind of adventure do they know? What kind of people / characters appear? Could they imagine being a character in such an adventure? What would they have changed / added? The aim of the text is to give all children, regardless of background, space the feel that they have a place in the cultural heritage, so that they can live in all the adventures and feel that it is also about them. The intention behind this is to break with stereotypes.
