Beneath the Ice
INVISIBLE THEATER IN SVANNINGE BJERGE
Beneath the Ice is a dramatised audio walk, created by a.o. Øhavsmuseet, BaggårdTeatret and Faaborg Museum. The setting is the beautiful countryside of Southern Funen and you decide when the show starts.
In the company of archaeologist Sofie, you ascend into the hilly Ice Age landscape that cradles the picturesque town of Faaborg. Feel how your pulse quickens as you walk upwards with a lovestruck Hans Christian Andersen in your ear. Smell the pine forest as Riborg Voigt shares her memories with you. And let yourself be captivated by the gentle hills that mesmerised the famous painters Anna and Fritz Syberg.
The show blends historical reality with fiction, drawing on correspondence between the Sybergs and between Hans Christian Andersen and Riborg Voigt.
