Halfdansk Rapsodi

Date: 13 June
Time: 19.00
Address: Kirke- og Kulturhuset, Søndergade 33, Vinderup
Arr. by: NTL


Iben Nagel Rasmussen, actress at Odin Teatret, talks about her father, Halfdan Rasmussen; a wild story about the skinny working class boy, who became all Danes’ Halfdan. With poetry reading, songs, photos and film fragments, Iben Nagel Rasmussen will create a collage depicting the more unknown side of Halfdan: his childhood, being one of many children, living with his family in a two-bedroom apartment in Christianshavn, the early youth with unemployment, political engagement of the 30s, a stay in a “højskole”, a travel on bicycle to Spain, at a time when the Civil War was raging, his encounter with other young aspiring poets at the Young Artists’ Club during the German occupation, and onward to the road of recognition and fame.

HALFDANSK RAPSODI is not a children’s performance, but rather a journey into the sometimes bleak background from which Halfdan’s grown-up poems grew out of, richly peppered with peculiar, fun, off centre and characteristic rhymes, which came to be his signature as a poet.

Direction and performance: Iben Nagel Rasmussen, actress, Odin Teatret
