Kubbe Lager Skyggeteater

Åshild Kanstad Johnsen - Gyldendal (Norway)

Kid E-Lit Exhibition
Tuesday, August 4 • 17:30 - 19:00 (Bergen Public Library)

In this digital first picture book app, the reader encounters several interwoven stories connected by a thoroughly digital aesthetics that suits the different stories. The frame narrative centres around Kubbe, an anthropomorphic wooden log (kubbe is Norwegian for log) who is having a picnic with his grandmother and becomes curious about the shadows he sees. Upon hearing his grandmother’s story about how shadow theatre was created in ancient China, Kubbe decides to produce his own shadow theater: an unusal retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. The tablet’s affordances of back lighting, animation and visual spatiality are exploited in this app in a manner that suits and enhances the different stories’ individual characteristics.
