C OMPE T IT ION 15.00–17.00 OT H E R You might think that a sheep’s life is pretty uneventful, but that is where you are wrong! In this clever and funny outdoor performance the audience gains insight into the real world of sheep. A flock of sheep and a ram have flown from Canada to Bergen and have settled down in rural surroundings. But all is not quiet and peaceful in this pastoral scene: intense love triangles are in store, and there is milking, shearing and grazing to be done – not to mention the wolf! Outdoor programme The performance about the sheep is engaging, wordless and surprising, and has received awards in several countries. The actors’ fantastic body language and the surreal humour have gained high repute. During the Festival, the city is filled with music, humour, stunts and surprises. DJs, dancers, circus artists and a number of guerilla musicians will bring the city centre to life throughout the Festival period.
