The Journey

A heartwarming tale of finding oneself
Created by Teater Spektaklo, co-produces with Teater Refleksion

The village is under attack and everything is chaos. The boy Birk runs about with sword in hand, what should he do? At once he stops up, turns on his heel and leaves. Others from the village do the same. They flee from what once was their home.


”…tons of action, poetic whistling, a fine combination of puppetry and theatrical storytelling as well as visual simplicity contribute to making ’The Journey’ an exciting and intense performance.”

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.
