Do we produce for young audiences? The answer is yes, for them too. We aim to give our young audiences expressions they have not seen before, but that still has a resonance in their lives and world.

THE TIRED MAN and THE KITCHEN are our productions made especially for children (5 years+). However, all the other performances under our banner “Junior” is performances that have been performed with great success for teenage audiences around the world, allthough they were never made with a age specific target group in mind.

THE TIRED MAN and THE KITCHEN are recommened for age 5 and up and works well with school classes as well as family audiences. A DANCE TRIBUTE TO THE ART OF FOOTBALL seem to excite people of all ages, but for pure youth audiences we usually recommed a 12+ audience. THE MINISTRY OF UNRESOLVED FEELINGS, SALVE REGINA and THERE needs a few more years of life experience to encounter, and works best for a 14–15 years+ audience.

Please feel free to contact the office for any enquires about our “Junior” programme.

THE MINISTRY OF UNRESOLVED FEELINGS

The Ministry of Unresolved Feelings has scarce resources but an important mission. The caseworkers are responsible for solving problems that no other agencies can remedy. The paper stacks in the incoming tray grow ever higher, but a surprisingly high number of applicants have their cases reviewed.

THERE

Four dissidents from the former Soviet Union are stranded in the interzonal area between East and West. In the far from harmonious atmosphere the essential question remains – should they continue towards the unknown or should they go back to what they know?

SALVE REGINA

Life can be miserable. Indeed. Where do we seek comfort and relief? SALVE REGINA is an associative journey through different periods of time. An imaginative time travel through anchoring and agitation, power and impotence, feudalism and individualism. The title refers to the Maria hymn, which for thousands of years has given hope and comfort for those who need it. And we still do.

A DANCE TRIBUTE TO THE ART OF FOOTBALL

The performance delves into the physical routine of football and elevates the aesthetic aspects of its insanity. It comments the difference between “common sports” and “eloquent arts”, likewise the concept of working-class football and upper-class ballet.

THE TIRED MAN

The show is about a man who oversleeps every day. When people cannot get up in the morning, they are often called lazy and indifferent. But if we follow this man’s extreme desire to change through a tiresome day, we may realize that he’s a hero.

THE KITCHEN

Outside a town is an abandoned house. One day two persons appear from different directions. They stand on either side of the house and think “I can live here!” One is an old sailor who has finally gone ashore. The other is a little girl who has run away from the orphanage.
