About Granatengelen* (The Grenade Angel)

At the webpage of Kulturproduksjoner the following is written about Granatengelen:

"Written for Klomadu Theatre by Geirr Lystrup, developed in close collaboration with the director and actors. A production for everyone aged 7 years or more. Opening at Hamar 1991. 

Through imagination and playing Amina processes the adult world she meets, a world in which the parents' hurry and career focus rule, and the child has no room. Storytelling theatre in a bound form, accompanied by music."

Press review

Arve Stensrud, date unknown, Hamar Dagblad [Hamar]:
"Besides being good theatre, this can also be good therapy. The fairytale world always has been. For the child. It is a channel to process reality through. Naturally, Klomadu Theatre has a conscious relationship to this. This is targeted theatre. It is not entertainment just for entertainment's sake. The production is a starting point for something more, for reflection."

Bente Elisabeth Skjefstad, date unknown, Hamar Arbeiderblad [Hamar]:
"The entire stage image is impressive. The curtains give a feel of entering a closed and secret room, with proximity to the performers. Thus the audience directly enters the child Amina's experiences, when she is to liberate herself from her parents' nagging between meetings and work. (...) The play Granatengelen* (The Grenade Angel) is a tribute to bravery, it shows that the unknown is no longer as dangerous, but it challenges. That is the key to living a full life."

More about Granatengelen* (The Grenade Angel)

På hjemmesiden til Kulturproduksjoner står det følgende om Granatengelen:

"Skrevet for Klomadu Teater av Geirr Lystrup, utviklet i nært samarbeid med regissør og skuespillere. En forestilling for alle fra 7 år. Premiere på Hamar 1991. 

Gjennom fantasi og lek bearbeider Amina den voksenverden hun møter, en verden der foreldrenes tidspress og karrierejag er styrende, og barnet ikke får plass. Fortellerteater i bunden form, og med musikalsk følge."
