Librarian Karen's library is full of books! And just like in kindergarten, there are many different departments. Departments for big books and small books, for yellow and blue, for cookbooks, fairy tales and poetry. There are sad books and funny books and a separate section for scary books that hardly anyone dares to borrow.

But then something strange happens. Karen discovers a tiny newborn baby book, with blank white pages. It's very small and terribly cute.
But it can also cry! Is it hungry? Or is it tired? Join Library-Karen's Library and let the little ones discover the strange world of books and libraries

With this performance, we want to awaken young children's interest in books and pique their curiosity for literature through the theater's playful approach. In an increasingly digitized world, we believe it is becoming more and more important to give focus to the physical book. Books, and the stories that live in them, are not only a source of knowledge, but just as much a tool for developing imagination, empathy and language.

Supported by Spenn, Arts Council Norway Vestfold and Telemark County Council, Porsgrunn Municipality and The Fund for Performing Artists.
