Six shows that actualize the reformation’s themes for children and adolescents have been developed and will be performed in churches throughout the country in the autumn of 2017. At Showbox it is possible to see two of these.

He cheated his brother and ran from the country. He fights with God. Jacob spent a whole lifetime coming home.

The story of Jacob and his brother Esau is a classic from the Old Testament. It fits perfectly in the reform anniversary! The story is dramatic, exciting and enigmatic. Jacob’s struggle becomes a picture of our lives – without filter. The mercy is hidden everywhere he walks. In a simple and pictorial language, close to the Biblical, Helga Samset gives life to Jacob’s dramatic journey. She is accompanied by a playful and strong trumpet, handled by Jonas Kilmork Vemøy.
