When Forks Dance

A fantastic experience full of surprises
Lisa Becker, Claus Carlsen and Catherine Sombsthay in collaboration with Teater Refleksion

’When Forks Dance’ is a sensuous experience for the little ones. The show combines rattling, whistling and sparkling everyday objects with exciting instruments, games and movement in small poetic and playful situations. Here the children are given the time and space to understand and absorb various impressions in their own way and at a pace that leaves them both calm and enthusiastic. 

In a poetic manner space, the body, movement, light and sound all form a synthesis. A puff of air brings the floral tablecloth to life, and merry tones from the guitar make the cola tops dance – and much more!

It is a moment of play that continuously evolves into new moments, thereby unleashing the imagination and interacting with the youngest audience members’ natural curiosity and desire for experimentation.


”A strong aesthetic expression (…) Distinctive musical compositions and sounds well worth a listen. Beautiful images and formations in the room” – Teateravisen


’When Forks Dance’ was originally produced in 2016 as a collaboration between Lisa Becker, Claus Carlsen, Catherine Sombsthay and Teater Nordkraft.




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.
