Fully booked

Gothenburg Culture Festival is over and the booking is closed!


After it has stood empty for many years, Kari Gripenklo is opening the old theatre again, but something is wrong. Costumes and props are going missing, the doors are banging without anyone around and isn’t that the smell of Sulphur? There’s only one explanation: the theatre must be haunted by its old ensemble. Could it somehow be connected to the play they were rehearsing, Faust, the story of a man who sells his soul for success?

You are welcome to take part in the exorcism of the theatre, safely led by Jenny Ask, Sweden’s only certified ghost hunter. No previous experience necessary. Ghost hunting for beginners is a new interactive horror comedy, for children ages 10-12, where you will be able to use a web application to affect the story.
