Three Mothers by Dansdesign won The Hedda Award 2003 in the best production for children and youth category.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"This year's best production for children and youth is one that meets its audience extraordinarily well. The artists behind it have long experience from Norwegian performing arts and have put several prestigious projects behind them. The work is characterised by a distinct style, in which the visual and the movement are central.

This they have taken advantage of to the full, and through that they have created a production which in a formidable way captures the attention of an audience group who is not usually given many performing arts experiences, that is, the very youngest - those in the age group from zero to three years old.

The best production for children and youth award goes to Anne Grete Eriksen and Leif Hernes in Dansdesign, for the production Three Mothers."

Three Mothers by Dansdesign was part of Arts Council Norway's project Glitterbird, with art for the youngest.
