 Skromlehjulet Figurtheater usually works with self-produced stories and puppets, together with selected sound and visual effects. We are very keen to take care of the classic puppet theater as an important cultural heritage within this art form.

Our shows have proven to reach all age groups wery well. We relatively make performances for children.
