They who have met Mattis do not forget him. Now a new generation will meet him. The story of Mattis has been constantly evolving new generations ever since Vesaas' novel came first. He is so easy to love - Tusten, as he is called in the village. We draw attention to him, both in others and in ourselves. And yet it's just that he's so different, so completely, that makes him touch us so much-wherever we are in our lives. Mattis and the sister sister Hege live alone and in very simple terms. She knits to get a living, but when Mattis gets a job, he is happy to stand for him. He lives the most in his own world. One day he detects the rug that pulls over the rooftop. He will think of himself as such a strange bird, and interpret this as a sign that something should happen. Not long after, lightning blows into one of the tall trees outside the house. He also sees this as a warning - he called the tree-tops for Mattis-and-Hege. And when the logger Jørgen shows up and gets a living room with them, and Hege and Jørgen eventually become lovers, Mattis feels that all his life has been changed. What is he going to do? Mattis can not stand a life without Hege. Fuglane has been dramatized and filmed a number of times, both in Norway and abroad. This time we present Vesaas' masterpiece in a brand new version. It is made by Lasse Kolsrud, who also has the registry. He has in recent years been responsible for a whole series of successes at the National Theater, from Bikubesong and Førstereis to Kan nokon intervene. He will give history his unique blend of robust narrative and sorrowful seriousness. The Kingdom Theater will tell stories that unite an audience across the country - stories that give us belonging to the culture we live in, which makes our common life experience recognizable and living and present. And important. In Norwegian post-war literature Tarjei Vesaas' novel Fuglane is such a common scene.
