Det har vært debatt i media etter at ekteparet Oddrun og Nils Terje Aarsland fra Vigrestad Indremisjon i Rogaland gikk til pressen med anklager om ”banning”, ”blotting” og ”stripping” i forestillingen A Dance Tribute to the Art of Football. Vi tilbyr herved noen faktaopplysninger for elever, foreldre, lærere og arrangører involvert i vår turné for Den Kulturelle Skolesekken.
