Fargespill (“Kaleidoscope”) has entertained over 450 000 people across Norway over the past 15 years with explosive and gripping performances. The shows have a solid reputation for bringing out tears of joy. 

“Fargespill sparkles so much that even the most discerning critic cheers unreservedly, for each and every performer, and what they have created together” (Ida Habbestad, Aftenposten)

WHAT IS FARGESPILL?

Fargespill is an artistic organization that 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 rhythms 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.

Fargespill debuted in Bergen in 2004, and has since then performed at many festivals and major public events such as the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize Concert  and the 2017 World Cycling Championships. Fargespill has performed in front of most of the Norwegian ministers and the majority of the European royal families. The ensemble has released two albums, been nominated for Spellemannsprisen (the Norwegian Grammy Awards) and even the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize (!).

The Fargespill-method is resource-oriented where everyone has something to contribute. We should ask each other «what do you have?», not «what are you missing?». The philosophy explores what happens if people dig for gold within each other instead of looking for dirt.

Since 2017 the Fargespill foundation has existed  in both Bergen and Oslo. The Fargespill-concept is licensed to several municipalities all over the country, as well as to Sweden – and many more are on the verge of starting up their own ensembles. These are independent units. To read more about the licenses, please follow this link.
