Why not combine it with a walk?

A new Norwegian premiere! This dancing fairytale, with a technological twist re-imagines the stories of the shamanic musician Väinämoinen in Hammerfest
"Born Old" is a piece created especially for young children. This Norwegian language premiere is being presented for children aged 4-6 years. The piece is based on some of the ancient stories from the Finnish poem Kalevala and uses narrative, dance, projection and beautiful Finnish songs to tell the adventures of Väinämöinen, who has travelled North, bringing an environmental message. "Born Old" uses interactive projection as an integral part of the performance and at the end, the children are invited to come out onto the floor to try the technology for themselves. This is a new version of the show with the addition of a Norwegian narrator.
