One day granddad moves to live with Linnea’s family, which is a challenge as he speaks Waffle and Linnea does not. Mum speaks Waffle with him, but Linnea doesn’t understand what they say. That is a bit annoying. On the other hand granddad is quite interesting. For example you wouldn’t believe what he keeps hidden in his beard. Soon Linnea learns that taking what isn’t ours can have unexpected consequences…

Höpönlöpöä is a children’s theatre performance for the whole family. It is about growing up in a bilingual family. We recommend that parents and children share the experience and talk about it at home afterwards.

The play is particularly suitable for 4-10-year-old children. We recommend that parents and children share the experience.

NB: There will be 30 minute workshop after the performance for children ages 4-10 with a separate booking. 

First Nordic Festival
