Sweden's Theatre Sagohuset to perform "Max - The Play about the Ball, the Car and the Lamp"

     Theatre Sagohuset from Sweden will perform its award-winning play for toddlers, "Max - The Play about the Ball, the Car and the Lamp", in February next year. The theatre group won Sweden's Bibu Award for Best Children's Play in 2012.

     This multimedia theatrical performance is tailor-made for toddlers aged 1 to 3. A dancer, a musician and an actor use ball, car and lamp props to bring little Max's magical world and everyday adventures to life, thus inspiring the young audience's understanding of words, colours and tunes. The play is also about how children see people and the things around them, and last but not least, silly things happen beyond their imagination. 

     Theatre Sagohuset was founded in Sweden in 1987 and is devoted to creating a variety of children and teenagers' programmes. The Theatre's primary audiences are children and young adults aged from 1 to 25. Its artistic goal is to give voice to those who, in the traditional sense, are not the main characters, heroes and idols of our times. The theatre has given around 400 performances around the world and has already toured Denmark, Norway, Finland, Austria, France, India, Cuba and the United States with this performance.
