Teatret lampeabout the theater

Teatret Lampe has specialized in making humorous, poetic and topical performances for the youngest audience, with an effective mixture of acting, puppets, live music and visual art.

Besides innovative reinterpretations of classical fairytales, Teatret Lampe also stands for thought provoking contemporary Danish drama in collaboration with some of Denmark's most prominent dramatists and directors. 

For 25 years Lampe has produced performances which have toured at home and abroad. The theatre's success for the very youngest kids “The Ugly Duckling” (2000) that has played more than 400 times in Denmark, was invited to perform at the Kijimuna Festival 2006, Okinawa, Japan. The show has also toured in Greenland (2004), Sweden and Finland (2005).


Most recently Teatret Lampe has toured in Pakistan (2008/2012/2013), Greenland (2008), Italy, Slovenia, Russia, the Faroe Islands (2009), Germany (2010/2015) and Poland (2011/2017).
