Drama and theatre group for senior citizens

Sverresborg, Trondelag Folkmuseum – an open air museum in the middle of Norway – runs a drama- and theatre group for senior citizens. The main aim is to encourage people to become more interested in cultural heritage through drama and theatre methods.

A group of about 10 people meet once a week with their drama teacher. They follow a curriculum where, within the learning environment, they get to know each other in a safe and comfortable setting. During this session participants learn different kinds of drama and theatre techniques: how to use their voice, their body, taking different positions and so on. The museum also offers guided tours and visits of exhibitions for inspiration and learning-purposes. The group creates their own performances together with the drama teacher and they perform for an audience at the museum.

Since 2003, Sverresborg has offered opportunities to partake in drama and theatre groups for children and youths. In total 60 - 80 young people participate each term. This spring all the groups have produced a performance in common - including the seniors! They have been inspired by a painting called ”At the fishmarket” (I Ravnkloa) painted by a local artist Christian Eggen. The first performance  takes place on the 28 May at Sverresborg.
