SWEET HOME ON WHEELS A comical street theatre show for audience of all ages. Based upon an idea by Hungarian director Pál Kalman (Karzat Theatre) and created by actor Adrian Schvarzstein, Sweet Home on Wheels is an absurd and comical show where slap-stick situations are created like pearls on a string. In this ‘tête-à-tête’ relationship between a husband and his wife, ‘the third wheel’ appears – a camper van lovingly dubbed ‘Old Betsy’ by the couple. The tight living conditions in the camper van keep disrupting the harmony of the ‘old world’ made of ‘old things’ in which the couple have lived up to now.

STUDIUM ACTORIS (SA) It was founded in 1989 in Bodø and has been based in Fredrikstad since 1997. The main focus and tradition of the ensemble is based on international cooperation and exchange of experience and knowledge across national and genre boundaries. SA is a laboratory for the development of the actors’ physical expression. ‘To us, the actor is a human being with special tools and qualities; these make him or her an interpreter between the universe and humanity. By its transparency, the actor can also be understood as a window through which the spectator can see the world and the mysteries of the universe, in completely new ways.’
