Hando and Kjendo are two characters from Tore Renberg and Kim Hiorthøy's picture books. Hando is tall, thin, green and when he says something he cries. Kjendo is short, round and laughs when she speaks. But these two opposites are good friends. Together they experience strange things. One fine morning, they end up at Ella's house, where she has ordered a new sofa. The misunderstanding is a fact. What would you do if you had a long green one and a round red one in your living room on an ordinary morning? Ella tries hard to get rid of the two friends, she doesn't want to believe they're really there, but is eventually lured into Hando and Kjendo's strange universe, where both Beethoven and the beach await. A play between the big and the small, the long and the round, the fast and the slow: two non-realistic characters who safeguard the poetic in Hiorthøy's visual world. Teater Joker uses sounds and music and Tore Renberg's subtle, humorous and naive text as a starting point. Through both abstract and concrete forms of expression, the group plays with words, colors and sounds that stimulate our entire sensory system. Hando and Kjendo's world is a playful world, where wondrous things can happen on an ordinary Thursday. That's the way it is!
