On demand: Yana & the YetiKids event

Home with Bergen International FestivalRecorded at Den Nationale Scene, Bergen, Norway
Online until Tuesday 30 June 2020 18:00 (Oslo time zone)

A hairy story about a child's fight for being understood.​

​Imagine being far, far away from home and all alone. You arrive in a remote and snow-bound village surrounded by dense forest and strange noises. This is how the story about Yana begins. She does not understand a word of what the villagers are saying, and the other children taunts her with stories of mythical mountain monsters.

Yana & the Yeti was the most popular children performance during the 2019 festival. Finally we get a reunion with this dark, funny, and gripping story about a child's determination and fight to be understood, and the discovery that friends come in all shapes and sizes – and sometimes with a lot more hair than you had imagined.

Lifelike puppets play the lead in this charming family performance that constantly involved the audience and features beautiful winter landscapes and new exclusive music. The midnight sun and northern lights create a world that will easily fascinate you while the use of mime, puppeteering, and a mixed European language evoke associations to Lewis Carroll's nonsensical poem Jabberwocky. The performance is suitable for everybody regardless of language.
