The show is in two parts (two 20-minute stories): Aurore and the mystery of the Chaga and Dreugen.

Latecomers will not be able to enter.

Aurore et le mystère du Chaga

The tale "Aurore et le mystère du Chaga" takes us on a journey to the tundra which is populated by a few birch trees twisted by the wind where the dark winter gives way to the illumination of the northern lights. This tale illustrates what is currently happening with the environment in the world. The trees and animals are afraid of disappearing forever because of the carelessness of humans. The waters are contaminated, the trees cut and the forests burnt, but soon an extraordinary event will allow nature to flourish once again.


The Dreugen is a Norwegian folk legend from the Norland region. This tale tells the story of one of the most feared creatures in the seas of northern Norway. The tale highlights a time when human beings respected the circularity of the environment, when fishermen took only what they needed to feed their families. The Dreugen’s tale is one inspired by Norwegian folk tales and which addresses the various environmental issues facing the northern seas today.
