The Wind on the Moon

By on December 14, 2016

The Wind on the Moon, unveiled already last spring, is a family show of sibling love and dreams of freedom in the shadow of the wars seriousness. A fairytale adventure about the need to be who you are.

The sisters Dina and Dorinda have been taught that they must be kind and obedient, otherwise can a vicious wind from the moon blow into their hearts. But all they do is perceived as mischief of the world. Their father has gone off to the country Bombardiet to help bombardierna to set aside its dictator and when he is captured the sisters decide to rescue him.

The British writer Eric Linklater’s beloved children’s book The Wind on the Moon was written during World War II and has over the years gained classic status. In Sweden it has gone as a radio serial on several occasions, been made to TV series in 1985 and has also worked for the theater. Screenwriter Sofia Fredéns swinging dramatization, which previously has been set up at the Helsingborg City Theatre, is now coming to the Royal Dramatic Theatre – here with Ellen Lamb as a director. In the main characters Emma Broomé and Sanna Sundqvist.

Through a spectacular visual design – the actors and scenography interact with projected animations on a close and for Royal Dramatic whole new way – comes the tale to life as never before. Dina and Dorinda becomes big as balloons, transformed into leaping kangaroos, travels with everything from scooter to train and is involved in many other things. The line between fantasy and reality dissolves in an exciting and entertaining way. It will be a spectacular ride, but with a serious bottom. The Wind on the Moon is a story of stuffiness, longing for freedom and sisterhood, and indirectly poses the question: what does it really mean to be free?

The show is recommended from 7 years and up.
