Make it a fairy tale summer. See our new play Pippi flyttar in, ride the Story Train and unleash your imagination in our fun building.
Take the Story Train into the magical world of Astrid Lindgren. Hop off at Pippi’s House where Pippi will be moving in this summer at last. In our new play, Pippi flyttar in (Pippi moves in), performed by a children’s ensemble, you get to see Tommy and Annika’s first, amazing encounter with Pippi Longstocking.
Our lovely gardens were made for games or enjoying an ice cream. And the fairy-tale open-air theatre is the perfect setting for the performance Loranga, and for singing and playing music with our ensemble in Astrids bästa band (Astrid’s best band). After that, it’s time to explore Barbro Lindgren’s world with Loranga, the Wild Baby, Sam and all her other characters.
Next up, our Pavilion is the start of a sensory journey of discovery. The interactive installation What does imagination smell like? explores our senses and our imagination. Celebrating Swedish author Ulf Stark, the installation draws on his book Kanel & Kanin and its poems about the human body.
And after that you’ll want to go round again. And again….
The premiere of Pippi flyttar in is on 6 June. What does imagination smell like? opens after Midsummer and Loranga and Astrids bästa band are performed on our open-air stage from 3 July. Performance times are shown on junibacken.se/kalendarium/.
