In The Parisian pillow case by Teater Fusentast (Scatterbrain Theatre) AKA Theatre Fusentast Kalle and Sophie spend the rest of the vacation tracing the cuddle cushion.

It happens that they are right by it. The spectators know, but the two don’t. Poor Kalle is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Sophie mostly stays courageous. The audience follows them as they meet a cut of Parisians.

Suddenly the day when Sophie and her daddy have to take the plane back to Sweden and Mommy has come. Will they find the cushion?

The Parisian pillow case was the fourth production of Teater Fusentast (Scatterbrain Theatre) AKA Theatre Fusentast in Panopticum. It has been performed in Norwegian, English, Italian, French and Dutch in festivals and as a visiting production in Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, France and Italy.

The Parisian pillow case by Teater Fusentast was supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs/MFA (travel grant/performing arts).
