Hina Zaidi og Daniel Grindeland
A sofa, an armchair, half an hour, two performing artists. What are they talking about? At Showbox 2020, we launch our new video and podcast series; Artist talks. Two by two they meet with us in Kabelgata. We have put them together, some have met before, others meet for the first time, and what they both have in common is that they work with performing arts for a young audience.
