On a blue planet far out in space there are no adults, only children. They are wild children who play when they want to and go to sleep when they are tired, without anyone telling them what to do. Then a mysterious man lands on the planet, and teaches them how to fly when the sun shines by flicking the dust off butterflies’ wings. A perilous adventure ensues, taking the children through dark forests, deep valleys and skies of blue. Their friendship and ingenuity are put to the test as never before in the most dangerous adventure a child could imagine.

A play produced in oktober 2004. I wrote the text and based it on an old Icelandic epic poem from the 14.th century (see more about rimur). The king of Gotland is under a spell. He turns into a wolf each winter and roam the forests. His wife is tired of him and when he returns home one day she lures him to bed and chops his head off. Then she turns to Ulfham, her son and wants him to take his fathers place. He runs to the forests, but his mother casts a spell on his freinds, they shall have an uncontrollable lust for birds. Ulfham shall walk into a ghosts grave and be buried alive until a fair maiden comes and releases him...
Ulfhams saga is a heavy medieval drama based on a story not known to many Icelanders or to the world with issues that make it like a mix of Hamlet and Oedipus.

Nature's Opera (Náttúruóperan) is Andri Snær's first play. It is a play about a young man looking for a word instead of love. Because love does not fit the deepest feelings of his heart anymore, it's meaning has been ruined so it just means something close to ”I like you“ or ”fine“ or “good food”. Baldur is the main character, his life is a mess, so he collapses after a dramatic artistic failure that leads to his inner journey to look for the word instead of love.
