Two Vikings come to a terrified monastery, where they ask to tell their story – with the children acting it out. How they were forced to leave their home in Scandinavia, cross the rough seas and make a new home in Iceland. The customs and laws, the traditions and hardships. They show the culture of their people, so different from their public image. Also the dangers of a blood feud, which eventually leads to the death of their father and a Viking ship burial.
VIKINGS! Involves all the children taking part in many roles. It is told in the form of an Icelandic saga which creates a heightened sense of theatre as well as bringing alive many facts from Viking times.
Rainbow involves children in a unique way—and this new workshop lends itself to those exciting techniques, where drama is used to fire the children’s minds and imaginations. Further details from www.rainbow-theatre.com.
