​Will you come and play with some sticky tape?

Ritsj is a performance about and by sticky tape. Rolls of tape in many colours that are stuck, rolled, stacked and pulled into long strands. What sounds does the sticky tape make? How does the sticky tape feel against your skin? Ritsj! There it broke!

The Ruttetutts from Ruttetuttland play and discover the sticky tape, and as if by magic, it transforms into an instrument, a sticky ball, a small animal and many other things.

Ritsj premiered during the Arctic Arts Festival in 2019. The play received very good reviews and is the 2020 winner of the Hedda Award for Best production for children. Ritsj is spontaneous and playful, giving 0- to 3-year-olds room to wonder and participate. Together with the Ruttetutts, the children get to explore and play with the tape after the performance. The actors welcome views and whims and interaction from the audience.

"A lovely mixture of sound, movement, play, humour and beauty," the newspaper Nordlys reported and gave the show five out of six stars.
