Jazzfigur (Jazz Creature)

Jazz and puppetry are not so far apart as one would imagine, both having their roots in common culture,and building on improvisation. With this in mind, veterans of Norwegian jazz and puppet theatre, playing with their art, co-operate to give both old and young a special musical theatre experience.

Various puppet characters, using different techniques, and their own special music, present seperate episodes. Little Håkon learning to ride a bike, a troll searching for gold, and many more.

The episodes change as new music, puppets, and ideas take form. A fresh outlook, in keeping with the orignal intention. The performance har toured for Rikskonsertene as far as to India. Music and movement speak their own fairly universal language.
