Koivuhiiri ja päästäinen - Björkmusen och näbbmusen

The play combines drawing and storytelling in an unique way. The actress operates as a storyteller who live draws the characters and venues - altering between acting the characters and traditional storytelling. The performance is suitable for the whole family- it tells the story of two different mice that can not be friends because they seem different to the leader of the animals, The Muskrat. The Muskrat oppose to their friendship, and the Birchmouse and the Shrew decide to escape. An adventurous journey towards more tolerant venues can begin!

The performance deals with the fundamentals of racism: fear and power. It is a story about friendship that can last through any difficulties, and of love that overcomes all fears.

Grus Grus Teatteri is a professional project theatre founded in the year 2007. The multidisciplinary core of the theatre remains as nomads, working together in different combinations in Swedish, Finnish or English. Grus Grus Teatteri does not aim at settling permanently in any working space, but instead works as a guest and collaborating partner with different venues, in traditional theatres or site-specific.
