Grunkan Funkar - The Adaption Contraptions is a joyful celebration of the creativity and adaptability of humans for ages 3 to 5 years. It incorporates dance, acrobatics, theatre and humour inside of a playful forest of some kind of parallel dimension or colourful future in which far more than just the humans have developed their intelligence and abilities. The children sit on three sides of the performance giving them an up close and engrossing view in which they are within touching distance of the performers. 


Världen är full av överraskningar, en lekplats med outforskade labyrinter.
Kom med när vi undersöker hur Grunkan funkar och dansar oss igenom olika utmaningar och äventyr. Om vi tittar noga hittar vi det magiska i vardagen. Vi leker, lär och upptäcker nya möjligheter. Hopp finns i alla lägen…
