What happens when you find an ancient computer in the attic only to discover that it’s part of an intergalactic spaceship? Join us when we take apart the computer and reveal the history of the ship. Plantana is a sci-fi story of friendship and differentness and protecting what you love.
The performance follows two friends living on a planet out of balance, a planet where life has become an absurd hunt for the next new trend! With help from a spaceship the two friends escape from the crazy tyranny. They venture out into the big unknown and into the tiny treasures of the seed bank. This is the story of how two little people can erupt monumental changes and become a part of the solution.
The space odyssey Plantana is a family performance that comes to life in the crossroads of object theatre and electronica music. Øyteateret has brought with them Jørgen Skjulstad aka Center of the universe, who creates a sparkling and playful soundscape. His brand new compositions will be served live with his homemade instruments.
