SKOGSUNDERHOLDNING- Talk Softly But Carry A Big Stick, is show is a journey through mankind’s ways of constructing reality. The theme of the show circles the question: what is reality, really? The evening’s reptilian hostess guides the audience through innumerable theories and facts. The stage is transformed into a dreamlike forest where trees are suspended upside down from the ceiling, and the fog hangs thick in the air. The performance glides in and out of fantasy and reality, stand-up, cabaret and monologue. The evening’s reptilian hostess pursues you through the dark forest of the astral dreamscape to teach you a thing or two about life that you didn’t think you needed to know. Afterwards, you’ll know better. You’ll realize that you have grown up and that everything you know is wrong.
