Stella Polaris Theatre was founded in 1985 by Merete Klingen and Per Spildra Borg. The evolution of the theatre led from performances for a small audience to huge street projects. During the Theatrical Confrontations, the theatre will stage a colourfull parade composed of wild music, masks, puppets, jugglery, stilt dances, acrobatics and fire-devoures’ tricks. Frederic Arneberg described the theatre in the following terms: “The mix of Commedia del Arte, circus, carnival, mystic storytelling and strong street acting is almost genial. The vigorousity of the actors almost took the breath out of us”.
