The Fire will be an interactive theatre-event in two cities. Both cities have experienced big fires: Ålesund (1904) and Molde (1916). The performances are built upon the same research but are fictive material and will be adjusted to local conditions.

The Fire is made for an audience aged 12+ but is likely to also be for an adult audience. The performance consists of three parts. Part 1 and 3 are located in the theatre, and in Part 2 the audience leaves the building and is guided in the neighborhood by a smartphone-app, making their way to an exciting discovery.

Our hybrid theatre walk through the cities will playfully connect sensual experiences with useful information. Depending on certain answers, different ways to reach the aim will show up. But all the routes lead to the final event for all participants: a coming together in the theatre as a real event including the young rescuers as active participants, not just as spectators.

We are sure that the production will be an unusual experience for the young people. We will use their close connection to their smartphones to tell them an emotional story of three girls, whose life was shaped by a tragic event. An event that lives on in the minds of the current residents of the cities and still shapes their identity.
