Om forestillingen

15.-16.-17. og 18.juni

We celebrate that the 1-meter is gone. Now one millimeter is enough! PIT’s cornucopia – Festivalgata – is back!

Day by day program will be posted soon.

Clowns, acrobats, puppetry, music and dance. The streets are filled with artists of various kinds from far and wide. The city’s many restaurants serve food from different cuisines. Food trucks offer exotic flavors. Forget kitchen service at home; eat and enjoy yourself in the city. Children, families and cheerful, old ladies. Watch out for sudden entertainment. In short: Festivalgata!

All trees have a mother, just like humans. The oldest mortar tree in the world is the world tree Yggdrasil. But before Yggdrasil grew up, long before the world was created, before humans, cars and mobiles came, there was nothing. Absolutely nothing. Then fire and ice broke together and all sorts of strange things began to happen. By and with Nina Ossavy and Betula Pendula. Directed by: Anne-Sophie Erichsen.

Teater Avvik : The Beehive

Imagine that a beehive on wheels can hold a lifetime. Lars Vik tells the whimsical story of a man who had everything. To succeed, he must constantly have the help of the public. He usually gets that.
