Lisa Lie/PONR: Woodland Games

Price: 15 Length: 1 h Language: Norwegian (English surtitles)

The theme of the show circles the question: what is reality, really? The performance moves swiftly between fantasy and reality while the borders between true and untrue and more or less incredible theories are erased.

We´ll be guided through confessions, rituals and half-scientific facts by our reptile hostess, and rejoice in the fact that prince Charles just might be a lizard from outer space.

The stage is transformed into a dreamlike forest where trees are suspended upside down from the ceiling, and the fog hangs thick in the air. Shifting between stand-up, cabaret and monologue, the evening’s reptilian hostess pursues you through the dark forest of the astral dreamscape to teach you a thing or two about life that you didn’t think you needed to know. Afterwards, you’ll know better. You’ll realize that you have grown up and that everything you know is wrong.
