The Mind Laboratory

Cirka Teater

Meet Reddharen (The Cowardy Custard), Sinnataggen (The Spitfire), Firkanten (Mr Square Pants) and Hermegåsa (The Copy Cat). They all want to be understood, but experience the opposite.

In Tankelaboratoriet (The Mind Laboratory) we search for the way out of misunderstanding each other with the aid of a humorous and vulnerable examination of what it really means to be alive. We examine existential and recognisable issues with the help of Anne Marit Sæther?s most vivid drawings, Gro Dahle?s beautiful lyrics and Ragnhild Faanes? and Erling Smalås? innovative universe of sound.

Tankelaboratoriet (The Mind Laboratory) premiered at Ila skole on the 27th of January 2013, under the direction of Den Kulturelle Skolesekken (The Cultural Rucksack). The performance was funded by, Fond for Utøvende Kunstnere, the Municipality of Trondheim and Sør-Trøndelag County Council.
