More about Anne Marit Sæther

Hundre hemmeligheter* (One Hundred Secrets) by Anne Marit Sæther, directed by Kjersti Haugen and Anne Marit Sæther, produced by Cirka Teater, Trøndelag Theatre, The Norwegian Touring Theatre and Trondheim Voices/the jazz centre Midtnorsk Jazzsenter, won The Hedda Award 2014 in the best production for children and youth category.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"The best production for children and youth award covers a wide and open field. There is necessarily a great difference between productions for the smallest children and the youth approaching life as adults. This year's winner addresses the youth, but at the same time, through a simple narrative effect, manages to describe the stages in a young life, from childhood to youth.

Through the merging of a fairytale-like fable and everyday life we are brought along on a journey through childhood and take part in events having shaped the child's mind and attitudes towards the moment when a crisis has to be handled - not by an uncomprehending child, but a reflected youth. Such a performance, with existential sombreness describing a child in development, is rare fare in Norwegian theatre.

The best production for children and youth award goes to Hundre hemmeligheter* (One Hundred Secrets)."
