the participatory performance by evgeny goman and karoline una moen is a russenorsk lesson and neighbourhood school.
there is no audience in the performance: 20 native norwegian and 20 russian speakers study russenorsk and communicate with each other.

"moja på tvoja" is another name for the language, meaning... yeah no, you want to find out, join in.
