The Journey

A touching story about finding oneself

The village is under attack and everything is chaotic. The boy Birk runs around with his sword in his hand, but what should he do? Suddenly he stops – it doesn’t matter anyway. He turns around and walks away! Other villagers do the same thing. They flee from what used to be their home.

We follow the boy Birk, who, having lost everything, tries to find himself again. Inspired by the Danish tribe Cimbri, who travelled down throughout Europe 117 BC.


”… Lots of action, poetic flute tones, a nice combination of puppetry and story theatre, and the simplicity of the visuals all contribute to making ’The Journey’ an exciting and intense play.” – Teateravisen




You can find all the show guidelines for various schools and institutions here.

Please pay special attention to the following guidelines for evening and weekend shows:

• All 2020 shows have been put on sale with a reduced number of seats in the halls.
• When buying more than one ticket at a time, you’ll get a matching number of adjacent seats. Accordingly, there’ll be a distance of less than one metre between the persons in the group. All groups will be given seat numbers upon arrival for the show.
• If you wish to keep one metre between you and your neighbours (from nose to nose), each ticket must be bought individually. For logistical reasons, we cannot guarantee that you’ll be seated next to each other in this case. You’ll be given a seat number upon arrival for the show.
