Fargespill ("Kaleidoscope") debuted in Bergen in 2004. Fargespill produces stage performances with children and youngsters between the ages of 7 and 25 from all over the world. At a typical Fargespill show, you should expect to experience up to 100 people from over 35 different countries on stage at the same time. The performances are based on the cultural treasures the participants bring with them, such as traditional songs, dance moves and rythms from their upbringing or heritage. The musical expressions are merged together in medleys, with Norwegian folk traditions or expressions from modern youth culture. The performances are elevated by professional musicians, choreographers, instructors, sound- and light designers.
The Fargespill-concept is licensed to several municipalities all over the country. These are independent units, and among them Fargespill Trondheim. The first Fargespill Trondheim was arranged by Trondheim Chamber Music Festival and the Municipal School of Performing Arts in 2012.
