Oslo Party

22. feb. 2019

Lille Scene 22.02.2019 19:00

Due to the unexpected developments in gathering the group of teenagers for the show, Black Box teater will not present “Listening Party”. Rather, for one evening, the five day workshop with the teenagers will be presented as a showing under the title “Oslo Party” on Friday 22nd February. Those with tickets for Thursday or Saturday can exchange them for the “Oslo Party” showing on Friday 22nd February, or receive a full refund. Join and let’s have fun.

Oslo Party is a party on stage, the hosts are teenagers from Oslo, aged 12 to 18. They play their favourite music. Sometimes they sing along or dance along or cry along or whatever. They talk about their music and about themselves, their ideas, their worries, their thoughts and dreams. With the audience, they hang out, listen to music together, listen to each other, support and celebrate each other and their youth. The stage is theirs, the words are theirs, they have the power – whilst the party continues – to do whatever they want.
Listening Party tenderly unfolds their adolescence and youth – its vulnerability, its beauty, its energy, friendship and loneliness – and it is very touching.

*For all audiences and teenagers
