SCENE 4 13.00 - 13.50 Mira – the girl from far away
On a cold winter's evening, the Girl knocks on the door of a lonely little cottage. Svea, who lives inside, really wants to be alone, but still decides to open the door. There is something about the Girl. She looks and is different. She laughs and sings for seemingly no reason and speaks a language no one seems to understand. It awakens something in Svea. A longing to also laugh and play with others - it awakens a desire to belong.

Age: 5 years and up.

NOTE! The character Mira also circulates in the house about 20 minutes before the start of the performance.
