About the theater

The Theater

Dansk Rakkerpak & Faster Cool is the regional theatre of Næstved municipality in Denmark. Besides hosting local activities such as our international street theatre festival “Street Cut” the theatre is touring the globe and all of Denmark. The theatre produces at least two new performances every year. An indoor performance for young audiences and their adults with the use of puppets, animation, music/sound compositions and acting. And an outdoor performance made in a unique international comical physical theater language that appeals to both children and adults. Many of the outdoor performances can be performed indoor as well.

About the name:

Dansk Rakkerpak & Faster Cool was originally two theatres that merged in 2017.

“Dansk” means Danish and “Rakkerpak” is an old Nordic slang for ‘undesirable and suspicious groups of travelers’. Translated to English it could be: Danish Riff Raff.

“Faster” means Aunt and “Cool” refers to the interested, fun and cool adult that children adore because they are seen in their presence. The international name for Faster Cool is Auntie Cool.

Individually, we were good - together we are fabulous! -and provide quality performances for the age group: 1 ½ - 100 years.
