A True Tall Tale

Carte Blanche and Teatret Gruppe 38

A bedtime story from Teatret Gruppe 38 and Carte Blanche.
Very freely adapted from Selma Lagerlöf.

Don’t go through the forest
robbers lie in wait and they will threaten your life
Nevertheless, the old monk and his young apprentice walk
into the forest on an icy winter’s day
for they have heard about a wonderful miracle
that is almost too good
not to be true.

Audience experiences this wonderful story, lying in hammocks under a luminous sky.

The experience is deeply sensory: intense and ambient sounds waft through the air.

Wants to tell us something important. Not by spelling it out. But by appealing to our imagination. Quite a marvelous experience, great, intense and affecting

Sinister and dangerous, somewhat funny and cosy, somewhat mysterious and religious. It is well done
