A moving and hilarious story about a mundane day in the life of a bench.

A bench, so mundane. You find them everywhere in towns and cities, parks, and gardens, like an open invitation for surprises great and small. Sometimes, bench visitors perch next to each other mindlessly. At other times, they hope for peace and quiet, but they get something else. A sniffing dog, a child on a skateboard, a chirping bird, a friendly old man.

Don’t be fooled by the cute and cosy atmosphere of this puppet theatre. With razor-sharp storytelling, Bænken takes you on a whirlwind of intense and affectionate encounters which you won’t forget in a hurry.
