STRANDEN

  • Folkteatern Gävleborg
  • Projekt Scen:se

Stranden is based on the poem "Dover Beach" written by Matthew Arnold and the audience is invited to the scenery where the poem takes place, a poetic beach café by the sea.

British director Tim Webb’s work is multisensory, playful and interactive. He is the founder and former artistic director of Oily Cart Theatre in London.

The set design is adapted with custom-made seating for the audience, and newly composed music is performed live on stage by the actors. The show is built up in several layers to be able to communicate with children who are labelled as having complex needs including those with profound and multiple learning disabilities.

The performance is made for 6 children and their companions.

There is a short introduction before performance starts for Bibu festival audience who will be seated slightly behind the children.

From 6 years
