About the production


A performance about the number 3 and the difficulty of being 4, about the things that surround us and why they are there. Fact and fiction, real and pretend, the very very fast and the infinitely slow.

AB3 is a ground breaking performance for young audiences. It challenges the audience and stimulates the imagination. It opens a door to the unknown by being so familiar. AB3 is like a dialog with a secret logical language. It can be understood at the same time as it encourages letting go of the entire framework we are bound to.

AB3 was created for children aged seven years and up, but Martin Forsberg’s work is interesting for all ages, drawing its power from movement and form.
AB3 develops from the linear and the systematic to the flickering and chaotic. Jenny Nordberg’s set design and dramatic costumes, combined with “twisted” movement material by Martin Forsberg, create a visually beautiful, melancholic, mysterious and funny performance that challenges children’s imagination.
