Thoring Productions specializes in producing theatrical works for children and adults.

The family-oriented productions Hupshj! and Rosa Lyseblå (Pink Light Blue) were both created with the intent to present the audience with worlds that are musical, playful, poetic - and filled with humor. These works incorporate live music, and musicians’ presence and movements were conceived as intergraded elements within the production: the physicality of all of the performers is just as expressive of the overall concept as the costumes and scenography.

Hupshj! A Musical Fish Farce

Torres the Salted Cod, Mia the Jellyfish, Bodil the Urchin, Finn the Shark and Diemitri the Russian King Crab all live at the bottom of the sea.

And not one of them is happy with the way things are: Finn has no friends; Diemitri can’t find his way home; Torres, Mia and Bodil can’t stand to be around one another because one has bad breath, one stings and one pokes with sharp spines. But then Flink (Clever) the research scientist comes along - and he isn’t as nearly as stupid as he looks.

Manuscript/Direction: Ragnhild Thoring
Composer: Ricardo Odriozola
Costume/Scenography: Tove Sundt-Hansen
Performers: Siv Klippen - Mia the Jellyfish + piano; Beate Iversen – Bodil the Urchin + Marimba; Steffen Bekkelund – Torres the Salted Cod + various roles; Kristian Arntzen (2005)/Rolf Kristian Larsen (2006) – Finn the Shark + Diemitri the Crab
