NyNorsk Messingkvintett and Fakta Morgana have the pleasure of inviting you to SOL, a warm dark time story with a star team of performers.
Sol is nine years old, and lives with his mother at his grandfather's in Rjukan. Mother works as a hostess in the summer, but in the winter she only lies under the duvet, the adults call it bipolar.
Sol and grandpa have their own little universe, with a model of the Krossobanen where grandpa worked before, and each a walkie-talkie so they can always have contact.
But what happens when grandpa ends up in a nursing home, what if the health service discovers that mother can not take care of Sol?
Maybe the new neighbors Løpe and Hinke can help?
In the roles:
Silje Aker Johnsen
Jørgen Arnesen og Guro Bjørnstad Kraft
Marie Solum Gran og Berger Iver Færder
