Igor Dunder and Fetterforeningen // at 11.30 on the main stage 

When: Igor when he was little he had to learn to speak Norwegian. This is how he came to know the three cousins ​​Ali Baba, Baba Lillelam, and Lille Lam Nam Ham from Vietnam who spoke Norwegian even worse than Igor. Together they went on walks and played with both Norwegians and other creatures. Today have Igor a cousin association that sings and plays Norwegian songs with strange rhythms and tells stories about their favorite cousins ​​from when they were little.

Fetterforeningen consists of professional musicians who love to sing Norwegian songs and children's songs to Balkan rhythms and tones.

The theater committee // at 12:30 and 14:00 pm in the Theater tent 

- the performance where the Barnival audience helps decide the story!

Will 800 lions come down from the roof? Does the monster smell like puke or farts? Does the hero get laser vision or pink hair? Or is something completely different happening? You decide!

All stories have been created once. Some have thought about what the main character does, what choices the bad villain makes and whether the story ends well or badly. Someone has to make the choices so that exciting things can happen. Making a story is mostly about making choices - steal the plane or not, kiss the boy or not, hide or not, raise your hand or not. The theater committee is an improvised performance in which the audience participates in various ways and influences the action. Suitable for everyone from 5 years.

The Flying Seagull Project: Circus, magic and fun  all day! // Show: 13:0 on the Main Stage

The Flying Seagull Project consists of musicians, actors, clowns, magicians, dancers, artists and all kinds of people who have goals in common;

To spread laughter and joy to those who need it most in the world. So far we have visited over 130 children in hospitals, orphanages, special schools, in slums and in refugee camps.

We believe that everyone has the right to a childhood filled with play, laughter and love.
We believe that those who have the most difficulty have the right to a break where they can just play and laugh, and forget everyday life for a moment. We believe that laughter prolongs life and that it is never too early, too late or too serious to spread joy to those around us.

The Flying Seagulls Norway is looking forward to spreading laughter at the Kongsberg Jazz Festival. It will be a wonderful mixture of fantastic performances, magnificent circus, silly conjuring and fun activities. We will have our own little area where things will take place throughout the day. This is suitable for everyone aged 0-100 and the only thing we are looking for is their laughter.

The income from Barnivalen will go directly to this autumn's big project in Asia. Over the course of 10 weeks, The Flying Seagulls will visit children and families on the run in Bangladesh, visit orphanages and institutions in India, as well as families who have lost everything in the natural disasters in Nepal. We want to visit between 10 and 15 thousand children, and see at least as many smiles.

Workshop: Create your own song with Igor Dunder //at 13:45 in the Workshop tent

Is it Henrik Ibsen's floppy hat that has exploded in a cloud of smelly confetti? Is it a bunch of plastic forks from Hønefoss flying over Kongsberg while you're chewing on a limp banana? Is it grandma's mustache stuck in the glasses case or is it something else? 

You will find answers to these and many other questions below in the workshop IgorIgor works with improv theater and creates songs on the fly. You will help create something by being a composer, actor, singer, consultant, obesevator, commentator, or in general by being something you are good at. Maybe you find out that you are good at something that you didn't know before.
