At the website of The Norwegian Theatre the following, among other things. is written about Drake-zoo* (Dragon Zoo):

"When Dieserud/Lindgren comes to Scene 2 with a project especially directed towards the very youngest, they invite us to get to know dragons better. Here's a jungle of plants, smoke and sounds. And three dragons! The performance conveys no specific story, but sense-oriented experiences through sound, movement, interaction and games. The ensemble has examined the dragon as a zoological creature and as cultural-historical myth. This time, they are joined by composer Julian Skar and playwright Maria Tryti Vennerød, who has made short dragon verses.

Appropriate from 0-3 years."
