Showbox Fringe: The Girl With the Ugly Face
04/12/2019 - 18:00 - 19:00
6 years and up
Lisa gets easily angry.
When she gets angry, she gets very angry.
She has never beaten or thrown a stone at anyone.
But when she gets angry, she says bad things.
One day, she says so many bad things, that the girls in her class yells back at her.
They say: “Buuu, when you are angry you have an ugly face”
Lisa goes home thinking no one understands her.
Not the other kids, not the teachers, nor the parents.
This is a show about language and anger. It is also a show about friendship, and how it is possible to do things well again when everything feels bad.
The Performance at 16.30 is in English, ther one at 18.00 in Norwegian.

The show was developed in collaboration with Asker Municipality, and with support from the Norwegian Cultural Council.
The Girl with The Ugly Face is based on conversations and workshops with children about feelings of anger, loneliness and guilt.
We have been working with children ages 6-9 when we developed this performance.
