Quirky tales

A tribute to the Danish author Kim Fupz Aakeson and his free-spirited universe.

With the help of 5 chairs, an overhead projector and a playing wii controller, the show presents five of Fupz’ most lively and thought-provoking stories:

The Naughtiest Boy in the World, King Carroth, Mr. Wilder’s Star, Mom and The Girl Who Remembered Everything.


”... wonderful, intelligent fun.., Teater Patrasket adapt five Kim Fupz Aakeson short stories into a fine frieze of a theatre piece, delivered by Thomas Danielsen and Maria Myrgård in a neatly physical playing style that brings the meaty wisdom of the text to life while keeping us amused and leaving us with food for thought.”
