If the system owns the words, the system owns you.

Owned by Oslo Municipality is the story of the Princess. She is in the National Library for the thirty millionth time to tell her story and take her rightful place on the shelves there. But the Princess has a lot on her mind, and it's hard to include everything. Luckily, the librarian there is kind enough to help out with feedback and tips and tricks, so this is going to work out. Or will it?

Owned by the City of Oslo is a slam poetry theater performance for young adults and young adults about storytelling and power. About which stories are told and who gets to tell them, on what terms. About how strange and confusing it can be to maneuver through a jungle of stories that are made about, but not necessarily by, the person they describe. About being lots of "a little", but not "enough" of anything.

About loving cheese doodles. And about being a princess who is Shitty. Tired. Of fairy tales.

Produced by Jovialkontoret with co-producer SPKRBOX, in collaboration with Kloden Teater and Nationaltheatret.
Owned by the City of Oslo with support from the Arts Council Norway, FFUK and Dramatikkens Hus.
