Performance storytelling by Mikael Oberg
Hunters lacking etiquette; lung-eating companions; insulted deities, & the man in the moon…
Somewhere in the dark northern forests of Scandinavia you pass from a world of midnight sun into a mythic tundra landscape forged from shards of eggshell. Cold, strange and comedic, this is a world laced with epic.
Swedish performance storyteller Mikael Oberg embarks on wild and riotous adventures of over-enthusiastic heroes and malevolent spirits; tales of weird journeys to the moon and beyond, and ancient stories from the Finnish Kalevala and other dark materials, all re-imagined with wit, enchantment, humour and intensity.
This is proper Scandi Noir with added gods, delivered with demonic charm! Light the blue touch paper and retreat to a safe distance….
