Un-Magritt Nordseth developed the dance performance Lars or Lars er redd* (Lars is afraid) as part of the project Kunst for barn* (Art for children), a collaborative project between The Open Theatre (Det Åpne Teater) and The Norwegian Institute for Children's Literature. The stage text Lars is about Lars who is afraid of the dark room and what may be hiding in it. Lars was performed with the theatre performance Plopp (literally: The sound of water dripping) under the title of Teaterselskap* (Theatre Party) in Ibsen Theatre and The Open Theatre (Det Åpne Teater) in March 2009.

"All the children were invited onstage to draw between the two performances. Water monsters they could take home after." (2009, 14.03). Varden. 10.10.2010, http://www.varden.no/kultur/stappfullt-pa-barneteater-1.311012
More about Lars
About the production Teaterselskap* (Theatre Party): After the first half of the performance had been performed, drama pedagogue Lisa Nagel walked the children through the production. The children were allowed to make something they thought others would fear. The art made by the children was then exhibited as an illuminated stage decoration for the second half of the show.
