Strømgren for kids – The Kitchen

Outside a town is an abandoned and crumbling house. One day two persons appear from different directions. They stand on either side of the house and think “I can live here!”

JSK is thrilled to be announcing that we are now making our first hardcore kids performance, in co-production with Brageteatret, Drammen. THE KITCHEN is a story about a sailor and an orphan, both equally stubborn, trying to make a living together.
