"SKÅR" - of faith, hope and love

- Episodes from a human life -


"SKÅR - of faith, hope and love" is based on meetings and conversations with young people, and adults. They have shared memories, recipes and episodes from their lives with us.

Memories that are inherited for generations, which we collectively carry with us for better or worse. Choices that shape us as human beings, and the belief that life always carries us.

The performance is intertwined with music, storytelling, movement and text - in several episodes.

Suitable for young people, young adults and everyone who has been there once.

«The dance hall should be thick with tobacco smoke and anticipation. It should clink in glass, and people should have happy faces. "I'll take a look at the accordion, and ask him with my eyes to play a slow waltz - as soft as milk and honey."
