GRASS

The stage is covered with grass and half a car is about to enter. Two red-headed figures and a coffee craving neighbor appear. Movements take place and the music mixes with sounds of birds and lawn mowers. Suddenly the rain juggles under a cloud. Big and small, the perspectives are playing with us. Here in the grass, anything can happen!

The family performance Grass is an imaginative collaboration between Claire Parsons Co and Marionetteatern, with dancers, puppeteers and circus artists meeting on stage for the first time.

The collaboration stems from compatible views on performing arts for young audiences; interest in the space, how to communicate with young ages and the mix of expressions.

” As in Parsons’ signature piece MARMALADE, GRASS is curious and inventive in its movement, dancing and surreal imagery. Different dimensions are explored in big and small perspectives with people and puppets. Clouds are attached to a clothesline in the twilight, a big foot appears on stage and a long blade of grass is cut with a huge pair of scissors. It is imaginative, absolutely wondrous and ingenious.” / Svenska Dagbladet

”A classic and wonderfully tender performance.”  / Växjö Allehanda
