Camping Royale - Corpus 

A twisted fairy-tale for young and older children. Two queens from a different time go on an absurd camping trip, far away from court. Without servants, they will have to use their creativity to survive in the wild. Their castle is reduced to basic tents, royal dances must be executed on the grass, one needs to fish for lunch and cope with the unpredictable whims of mother nature... A charming and interactive adventure for all ages.

This free of charge, outdoors performance offers plenty of room for children and other onlookers! If we are lucky we will even get some sunshine to accompany the performance!

Firkantskogen (The Square Forest) – Ompaniet

The Square Forest is an imaginative dance performance for the very young. With a playful approach to body and space, the performance can evoke amazement and excitement in the young audience, emphasizing the encounters between child and adult, performer and spectator. 

The dancers investigate how the body moves and changes in relation with objects, music, lights and the audience. Hands and feet create sound when they meet the ground, and suddenly a dancer disappears into the scenography. Maybe she has turned into a crawling larva? 

DATO OG TID:
Fredag 28. sept. kl 10.00 0g 12.00
Lørdag 29. sept kl 13.30 og 15.30
STED: Teaterhuset Avant Garden

 

 

Baby BecomingsTeater Fot 

Baby Becomings is a musical theatre performance for the youngest children. Teater Fot invites babies and toddlers, along with their caregivers, to join them on woollen plaids in a welcoming atmosphere at the art gallery.

Together with an actor and three musicians, we embark on a journey through different sensory worlds, filled with song, rhythms and colours. The performance is moving downwards through layer upon layer, always becoming something else, transforming the floor from heaven to earth, eating grass, teasing, laughing, dancing, swimming, becoming a fish or finding a hidden treasure.

DATO OG TID:
Lørdag 29 sept kl 11.00 og 13.00
STED: Trondheim Kunstforening
MÅLGRUPPE: 0-3 år
PRIS: 150 (voksne), 75 (barn)
