Tjaldið / the tent

"Everything is done with warmth and care, resulting in a magical theatre experience.


"Perfect first theatre experience

- Morgunblaðið

The Tent is a theatre experience for babies and toddlers age 3 months to 3 years old and their parents and guardians. The children experience colours, textures, music and sounds in a safe and warm, but also stimulating environment. Leifur is a curious caterpillar that visits by accident María the ladybug's wonderful world in the tent. They form a deep friendship as Leifur goes through the most important transition of his life: growing up!

The Tent features live music, puppetry and aerial arts, just a few words and sign language, making this a perfect first ever theatre experience for children.
