More about The Wind Whispers

The fables in The Wind Whispers by Teater Grimsborken make up a study of conflict between parties between which power and strength is uneven; the balloon-like cheeks of the Northern wind against the heat of the sun, the arrogance of the stag against the humble attitude of the hedgehog, the majesty of the oak against the flexibility of the grass. Teater Grimsborken asks; What is strength?

The Wind Whispers was performed as stylised storytelling theatre with music. The language is bound, and the production has a recurring musical theme. The music is performed on hand-held instruments such as dream catcher, a tin bowl with water, mouth harp and ukulele.

The Wind Whispers was performed in schools in 2009 under the umbrella of The National Touring Network for Performing Arts.
