Sunday

- from a story by Kim Fupz Aakeson

Torsten's mother will be having a baby. Torsten's worst friend, Willy, knows why: 
It is because Torsten's mother and father don't think he is cute any longer, because they don't love 
him so much any more. 
For a whole long week, Torsten tries to figure out what he can do:
Maybe his mom and dad will love him if he gets more cute?
Or if he cleans his room?
Or maybe he simply has to try to understand what love is all about ...

"Sunday" is a dramatization of Fupz's subtle and philosophical everyday story - made alive for the 
4-8 year olds using small and big dolls, light projections and story-telling.  
"...a warm and heartbreaking performance about the experience of the firstborn child, when it moves
into the new life as a big brother or sister. With precise storytelling, concise staging and
detailed puppet work,'Sunday' is not only a relevant performance for children in Torsten's situation,but also a touching performance for the sensitive adults." Teateravisen/Danish Theater Newspaper
