Brageteatret: Teaterkomiteen // 12:30 og 14:00
-the improvised play where the Barnival-audience decide the plot of the story!
Will 800 lions decend from the roof? Will the monster smell horrendous? Will the hero have laser vision or pink hair? Or will something completely different happen? You decide!
All stories have their beginning. Some story makers have thought about what the protagonist does, what choices the villan makesand if the story has a bad or a happy ending. Someone must make the choices so that the exciting things can happen. Making stories is all about making choices – to steal the plane or not, kiss the boy or not, raise your hand or not. Teaterkomiteen is an improvised show where the audience, in various ways, contribute to influence the story. Suitable from 5 years and up.
Lydsafari //13:45 og 15:15
Join the musicians Simen and Mikkel on a musical safari! Her you can try different instruments, sing and play with music. Suitable for children of all ages.
Kyllingen som ikke kunne synge // 14:30
The trioen Lekerommet met through jazz-studies at Griegakademiet and wrote this concert for the 2014 Festspillene in Bergen. The concert is about a spruce chicken who is fed up with the dirty life at the farm, who dreams of living at the castle with the kind and queen. The chicken plans to achieve this by melting the kings heart with beautiful song. The only problem is that the chicken can’t sing. Through the concert we meet strange animals who hopefully can help the chicken. Among others we meet a fox in love, a selfish squirrel, and salsa dancing cows. The audience get to dance and sing along on the chickens path to a upperclass life.
This is a show by Lekerommet, consisting of: Karoline Wallace (vokal, ukulele, synth), Håvard Funderud (trombone, piano),
Petter Asbjørnsen (contrabass)
