Tasting Fairy Tales

Together with Mette Martinussen, we created an ambitious theatre event, which mixed gourmet food, theatre and performance utilizing both the city around the museum as well as the museum as a setting.
The event was a “tasting” of the various types of women from Andersen’s tales. From the childish princess from The Swineherd to the demonic femme fatale from The Snow Queen – and everything in between. It was not only an exploration of the diverse characters in Andersen’s universe but also a phenomenological exploration of communicating fairytales in a way that is more performative than mere representation.
