Shadow play for the youngest children.
The forest comes to life one early morning, and a forest fairy stumbles upon a large egg. She dreams of who is inside the shell and decides to watch over the egg.
In this non-linguistic performance, we follow the wondrous transformation from an egg to a newly hatched baby bird and the baby bird's transformation into a beautiful, full-grown bird who can fly.
The egg is a visual poetic performance with shadow play, music and movement for the youngest children and their families, and actors Thea Elisabeth Skallevold and Anette Løbach focuses on the fine-tuned interaction between performers and audience.
