Three nights a week at the National Theatre for Macbeth.
A role in children´s´television on Icelandic TV.
Up early to shot a scene for a movie.
This is not enough for Àgúst.
"Aunt Britt-Arnhild, I love acting. I want to act all the time. I will never stop"
Àgúst and his friend had been to the theatre Saturday morning to watch Karius and Baktus by the late Norwegian Thorbjørn Egner, and as soon as they came home, the livingroom was transformed into Jens´mouth.
The boys wrote their own version of the story, and spent hours playing and acting.
The aunt from Norway had a lovely time,
watching two boys too busy for computer games.
Not difficult to see that this is a mouth, is it?
Do you know the story about Karius and Bactus,
the two tooth trolls?
Àgúst, you are inspiering me.
I tend to spend to much time on the computer.
I´ll learn from you and do some "playing and acting" instead.
