About Teater Tre

Teater Tre is a Swedish theatre group established in 1979. Since the beginning, our mission is to make quality theatre for children and youth. Besides giving shows on the stage in Stockholm, we tour in Sweden and worldwide. We have previously performed in Uganda, Germany, Austria, Namibia, Japan, the U.S and many other countries. Since all our performances use very few words, they can easily be translated to, and performed in, many different languages. 

Our latest international tour was in Hong Kong, in February 2017, where we performed Good Night Sleep Tight in Cantonese, and also hosted a two day workshop about baby theatre, for Hong Kong based performance artists. 

Teater Tre's Mission

Our goal is to reach out to all children, regardless of their social, cultural or geographical background. We do this through a universal stage language that is characterized by few words and a great deal of movement. Our performances all have themes from everyday life that everyone, young and old, can identify with. Teater Tre wants to put Swedish theatre for children and youth on the world map. We want to awaken our audience’s curiosity for the theatre and for their own creativity. Teater Tre is also happy to invite international guest appearances to our home stage in Stockholm.

Teater Tre is supported by The State Counsellor for Cultural Affairs, Stockholm City Culture Department, Stockholm County Council Culture Administration and the European Union.

FRO_rund4.png

Frö (2-4 years)

To plant a seed
Grow
Build a tree
Be a cloud
Die or rest for a while

Frö is a story about the circle of nature, the course of life, and the human fascination for things that grow.

Frö is created from an idea by Sara Myrberg, artistic director and actor at Teater Tre. Sara Myrberg has a long experience from creating and acting in high quality performing arts for the very youngest, and her instinctive feeling and deep knowledge have resulted in children’s classics such as Clothes on Clothes off, Bubble, Halli Hallo, Blocks and Good Night Sleep Tight – performances which have toured all over the world.

Frö is the second performance within our EU-project Small Size, in which all members created a piece on the theme 'Wide Eyes'. Frö premiered in March 2017, and is now touring both in Sweden and internationally. It will be showcased at the Small Size Final Event in Galway, Ireland in 2018. 

 

Godnatt min skatt / Good night sleep tight
(2-4 years)

What do you do when it’s time to sleep?
Who puts whom to bed, and how? 
Will your friend still be there when you awake? Stars begin to shine and dreams are born.

Good Night Sleep Tight has also been translated to and performed in English, Spanish and Kantonese.

Concept Sara Myrberg / Cast Sara Myrberg and Per Dahlström / Director My Areskoug / Set Design Ylva Sanner / Music Johan E. Andersson

 

Peka Trumma Dansa / Look Drum Dance
(1-3 years)

A fun, nimble, rhythmical performance inspired by Eva Susso's books about Lalo, Binta, Aisha & Babo. We want to welcome the young audience to dance and laugh. And to want to watch theater over and over again.

Look Drum Dance has also been translated to and performed in Spanish and Italian.

Artistic leader & concept Sara Myrberg / Director Anne Jonsson / Cast Per Dahlström, Sara Myrberg/Lena Bondeson, Hui-Han Hu Gustavsson and Steve Shungu / Set & costume design Ylva Sanner / Mask Helena Bernström / Lighting Magnus Pettersson / Dramaturgy Anders Duus / Rythm instruction Kristina Aspeqvist / Educational material Lena Yxner / Producer Maya Berggren

 

Kloss / Blocks (3-6 years)

Which is more fun: building up or knocking down? A happy story about three characters and how they organize their world.

Blocks is a performance filled with slapstick, humour and a touch of seriousness. Blue overalls inspire the choreography that freely mixes the concept of work and play.

Blocks has been on tour in USA, Namibia, Netherlands, Japan, Denmark, Finland, Norway and all over Sweden.

Concept Sara Myrberg / Cast Sara Myrberg, Per Dahlström & Bert Gradin / Direction Stalle Ahrreman & Marvin Yxner / Dramatization Lena Stefenson / Choreography Jimmy Meurling / Set Design Ylva Sanner / Music Tin Hat Trio
