Join us at the table!
With Karen Blixen’s famous story «Babette’s Feast» in hand, we invite the audience to a celebration meal at Lystgården in Landås.
While we eat and drink, we bring to life the story of the foreign master chef Babette, who revives a small, enclosed society in Northern Norway. We invite 12 people to join us at the table, asking them to represent the guests depicted by Blixen in her story. At Babette’s table are seated the haughty as well as the good-hearted, and bickering old gossips and other prominent figures also find their way to the feast – and they all come to life during the meal.
In addition to the 12 seats around the table, a small audience will also be present and involved in the story while tasting samples of the food throughout.
This interactive performance is hosted by Henrich Birch, known from TV-series Borgen, Badehotellet, and Forbrytelsen (The Killing); Agnes Vevle Tvinnerheim, who has played a central part in the restauration of Lystgården and serves as the evening’s host; and storyteller and linguist Vibeke Koehler, who is narrating the story.
There will be two feasts at Lystgården. The participators are handpicked for the first one, while the seats are open to the audience the second time, and anyone who wishes to fill one of the roles, may apply at www.fib.no/babette.
