…and a year goes by.

18 Apr

It’s been a while since the last post. I’ve been working on several projects during past year and I will publish a mixed-sallad sort of post about some of them.

Most of my time was occupied by Fairytales in Craft, a project I started with Ola Andersson, Annika Wahlström and several other colleagues. It is a project aimed at children; a hybrid between immersive theatre, adventure playground and craft workshop, installed in an ex-industrial building called Långeds Mekaniska in Dals Långed, Sweden. Last summer we did a pilot, and this year we’re continuing the summer program for local and tourist kids.

There’s a full story, more photos and a movie here.

We’re also working on a travelling version of the show, which will hopefully be taken on tour in this thing:

The red bus is called Abellis Magiska teater and has been touring Europe for past 30 years as a travelling puppet theatre. Its original owners, Anders and Fatima, are looking for someone to continue the legacy of their bus, and Not Quite art collective (which I am a part of) is probably the new owner. The show that we’re working on will be based on a story by renowned Norwegian children writer Gro Dahle. The illustration below is from her book ‘Sinna Mann’, illustrated by Svein Nyhus.

Every once in a while my daughter comes up with a new project idea. A while ago, with a few friends she built a streetfood-cart which she called ‘Lilla Drink’ and used to sell lemonade from. Now they’re building a treehouse. I help them bring the materials and try not to interfere more than that. The top 3 most popular activities are painting, painting and painting.

And as much as I love winter cycling, I’m happy to say the spring has finally came to Sweden. Goodbye, winter!
