flower projections - teatret gruppe 38


Have you heard that children’s interest in reading is declining? Isn’t that terrible?

THE SECRET LIBRARY 1 and THE SECRET LIBRARY 2 creates a beautiful space that opens up the reading experience for children and adults.

When the books in the library
are not borrowed by anyone,
they smoke down in the dark cellar.
There they stand with their backs

filled with stories,
that can make my heart burst or bear

or swoon with happiness.
I have retrieved two of the books,

which are secret until they are opened.

In this performance with two available versions, Bodil Alling is accompanied by the most beautiful images and Søren Søndberg’s wonderful music and sound universe.

★ ★ ★ ★ “Completely enchanting theatre. Bodil Alling tells with presence, empathy and soul in the words.” – Iscene (DK)

Age groups and concept

THE SECRET LIBRABRY 1 is for children from 8 years.

THE SECRET LIBRARY 2 is for children from 6 years.

As we play one performance in two loops, you can easily combine the two stories, already when booking just one performance.

We would love to tell you more about the concept – please contact Producer Marianne Iversen at for more information.

Teatret Gruppe 38 - The Little Match Girl - Photo: Morten Faerby


Oh! A match afford her world of comfort. If she only dared take a single one out of the bundle, draw it against the wall and warm her fingers by it… RITCH!
In the midst of misery, hardship and pain – hope emerges. Against all expectations.

“You sit and wonder if Teatret Gruppe 38 plays different theatre, or if it is all the others who do it. ‘The Little Match Girl’ undeniably looks like real theatre.” – Jyllands-Posten (DK)

Suppose You had A Portable Grammophone


A loving salute to the famous Danish writer Karen Blixen.

Suppose you had club foot.
Then you could stand on one leg and see much higher.
Suppose we didn’t exist.
Then nobody could find us.
Suppose you had a portable gramophone.
Where would you take it.

In a tiny village, far north, lives a small group of people in brown dresses and black coats.
They look down mostly.
And because they look down, they have nothing to talk about and nothing to long for.

But then there’s Viola.
This is a story about Viola.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Maybe this is the best Danish theatre you can experience right now…This performance is just theatre – magnificent theatre. – Jyllands-Posten (DK)

With love from me to you!

Clean up!
Make space!
Here comes LOVE!
Where can I put it?
Where can I leave it?
Where do you want it?
What should I do with it?
You can have it!
Here it comes!

Greatest of all is love. Love can rein fear and anger and stand victoriously behind when everything else has gone.
In this performance, we clean up and draw love into light.

Gruppe 38 - A Story of A House That Turned into A Dot - photo Olivier Guillemain


A story about how long the road home is, when you run away in anger.

She became so hopping mad
She became so fizzling furious
She became so livid with rage
that she opened the window and climbed down the ladder
And then she ran.
