Sold out


a show based on what you don’t need anymore

That old vase you got from your aunt years ago, your ex’s worn-out t-shirt or last week’s newspaper - they’re all going to be thrown away sooner or later. Why not do it at our show - and we’ll tell a story from it.

Puppetry, storytelling and classical theatre blend in this improvised show based on stuff the audience members bring that they’d rather just throw away. With these objects as starting points we dive into all sorts of stories; funny, strange, sad or poetic. In a world where we get more and more things, Det Andre Teatret offers a show to reimagine the stuff we throw away - what they are, what they could have been and what we wish they were.

Det Andre Teatret is one of Europe’s largest and busiest independent improv/fringe theatres, based in Oslo. Their focus on strong improvisation skills and fine storytelling combined to an inherent theatricality and a playful risk-loving attitude have earned them an outstanding international reputation over the years.
