When humor becomes bloody serious.

At the beginning of the last century, the German satire magazine ” Simplicissimus ” was a red cloth for the emperor, the church and the authorities. The magazine gathered several of Europe’s greatest authors and cartoonists having fun with the authorities. Several of them with ties to Norway such as Ragnvald Blix and Olaf Gulbransson. But when Hitler came to power, satire became really dangerous, and the cartoonists had to choose: joke or life?

Tormod Lindgren, Knut Nærum, POING, Maja Ratkje, puppet theater company Theater Corpus and Teater Innlandet join forces to create a musical and humorous history lesson about satire as a weapon.

Simplicissimus is a tribute to the free press and the political satire that is still under pressure worldwide. Meet satirists, Nazis, Josephine Baker, a polar bear and dancing pencils in a sturdy mix of acting, puppetry and live music!
