Always thought that angels fluttered around in the clouds, all rosy and smiling sweetly? Think again! An angel has to work hard for its position among the stars up high in the sky. Particularly guardian angel Nanna has to work overtime, protecting Martin. This youngster loves Great Danger and he believes that every key conceals its own secret. Up until now, Nanna has succeeded in preventing disasters. Up until now… because just as she’s taking a short break, everything threatens to go very wrong.

“[Saskia Janse with Speeltheater Holland] once again conjure an imaginative and intriguing world where actors, puppets, music and scenery are mercurial, constantly transforming mood and character.” The Seattle Times

“The unique theatricality of Glittra offers its audience a key no one should resist, one that unlocks their own imagination.” Seattle Post-Intelligencer
