Simplicity, presence and dialogue. A journey among Gods. Experience the mighty God of War in action, the Trickster God asking for good ideas and the Goddess of Love get enough. See a huge Stallion helping a gnome of a Master Builder. Hold on when Thor gets back and hear that Freja is going to be married. Don?t get scared when a Mare gives birth to a strange foal. It?s theatrical storytelling of high carat when Jesper la Cour Andersen playing 11 roles brings us with great presence safely through the intrigues of the world of the Nordic Gods and gives us an experience beyond the usual.
