Klemet Environmental Theatre

The Klemet Environmental Theatre by Bjørnådal Arkitektstudio honors a hero of fine arts in the shadows of Norway’s mountains. His name was Klemet and his nomadic stage was never quite tangible. It was on this very land that he lived, had his home, and made his mark as a revered spiritual influence. As a mighty sami shaman leader he guided the locals in a quest for the worship of nature. The course of these beliefs render a glimpse of drama, a peek of entertaining tails, although always keeping the most devout attitude. In great respect for his humble legacy, the designers have created this beautiful tribute to his life, focusing on the environment by using recycled wood for the projection pillars and remnant tree stumps tossed by local woodworkers for the seating arrangements. Hay bails line up to make the stage front and simple props lend themselves for the scenes. It’s all so quaint, almost like a child’s imagination cut loose. Something that would have warmed the heart Klemet for certain…being honored in such a harmonious way for the goodness of the earth, for the love of the people.

Allison

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
