Monsters at play! Big Monster, Little Monster and Furry Monster met Norwegian families last weekend when Adele Duus premiered the play Monster Visit – Monsterbesøk in Norwegian, a play based on the book by same name, one of the creations by the author team Jónsdóttir, Güettler and Helmsdal. As an outdoor theater, performed in the midst of winter in Norway, one might say that the event involved some risks – but Adele and the monsters did great, despite heavy skies threatening with storm and hail.
Lys Levende Adele is a one-woman-theater run by Adele Duus, who has specialized in storytelling and adapting children’s books to theater. The project Monsterbesøk is made in collaboration with libraries and cultural institutions in Hordaland, Sogn- and Fjordane in west-Norway. The project aims to connect outdoor activities and culture, and the play is staged at public cabins that are within a walking distance for families with children. For example, by the cabin Sjöbua i Byngja, which does not merely offer a shelter to enjoy your packed meal but also has a small library, a small selection of books – among them books from the Monster series. Harsh winter weather does not hinder Norwegians from enjoying outdoors recreation and literature! An exemplary idea!
Publisher in Norway is Skald forlag.
