War is a topic that concerns us all. Children have their own ideas about it, but try as we might: we never have any real answers to their questions. An absurd slapstick show that succeeds in creating impressive imagery for the incomprehensible nature of war as well as a few surprising moments in which anything seems possible and all our fears are banished.

"Oorlog -War - is a powerful comedy. Drama, children´s games and current events all bleed into each other, jumbled together in what appears to be complete chaos, bordering on slapstick."
