The Dark Fortress
- A MIneCRAFT ADVENTURE
Frode Gjerløw wrote, directed and designed this anti-colonial adventure about three conquistadors who lost their shadow when they "found"
gold in the jungle. In the show, they learn how to get their shadows back by being honest about how they acquired their riches. The play was
nominated for best children's play, at the Norways national theatre awards: the Hedda-awards. This was Frodes first Hedda-nomination.
The show will tour again, in loving memory of Paul Viken Bakke, who played Sir Øst in the show's first season.
