Short text
Join us for a maritime adventure in the circus musical Havet (The Ocean), where an unlikely friendship develops between a fish and a fisherman. Fjård company uses juggling, singing, and dancing to create a circus musical for children. After the show, children (and adults) can try out some circus disciplines together with circus pedagogues.

About the show
Join us for a maritime adventure in the circus musical Havet, where an unlikely friendship develops between a fish and a fisherman. Fjård company uses juggling, singing, and dancing to create a circus musical for children.

The circus musical Havet tells a story of courage and friendship through humour, music, and circus arts. We follow a fisherman who catches surprising treasures from the depths of the ocean, breaks a magical spell, and reunites with his friend the fish, who once saved his life out on the ocean.

This wistful and playful show is created by Magnus Bjøru and Amanda Roynnesdotter. The duo, in their orange raincoats, old-fashioned fishing gear, and glittering costumes, invite us along to the Norwegian coast for an adventure which ends up taking an unexpected turn.
