In Sa ka la by Aarhus Theatre Olav Myrtvedt created a split stage design: Half of the stage showed a room decorated for Mama's 60thbirthday celebration. The other half showed Mama's hospital room.

In the play she gets a stroke the day she is to celebrate her 60 years, and the only things she is able to utter are sounds like "sa ka la". Her son and two daughters still try to communicate with her.
