About us

Theater Patrasket has been in existence since 1985 as a primarily actor-controlled theater. We’re based in Copenhagen, but tour the entire country – and sometimes even the world – with our performances for children and young people and their adults. Our background is in physical theater and mime according to Jacques le Coq’s principles at the Comedia School in Copenhagen, but over the years we have also incorporated many other inspirations into our theatrical language.

We make theater for children – but mostly for people. Based on the child audience, we want to make theater that is simple in form and universally human in content – and therefore can also be wathed by adults. We want to create theater from the heart, to touch our audience through strong stories that in their form also open up for play, magic and poetry.

We aim for a physical and visual expression and focus on integrating play and tools like scenography, puppets, etc. into the theatrical narrative. And we believe in the liberating and humanizing effects of humor: comedy as the surplus that gives us the courage and distance to carry life’s small and big troubles together.

Over the years we have created about 25 performances and have received support from the Danish Ministry of Culture’s funds for the majority of our productions.
