    Book review: The Lesson by Eugene Ionesco

    Book review of The Lesson by Eugene Ionesco This is actually a review of the script for a play. The play is a part of my reading challenge, where I read a play a week. My goal is to read 52 plays in a year and you can follow my progress right here and maybe even start your own! The Lesson by Eugene Ionesco The Lesson is a short play by Eugene Ionesco. It was a quick read and somewhat entertaining. Basically, there is a professor and his maid, who are expecting a new student. The new student arrives for her lesson and things kind of spiral out of control…

    Book review: The Chairs by Eugene Ionesco

    Book review: The Chairs by Eugene Ionesco “The Chairs” by Eugene Ionesco is a script and I read it as part of my ‘A play a week reading challenge‘. I read it in Danish, but will review it in English since it is an internationally known piece. I will not go into detail about the surrounding contexts of the play when Ionesco wrote it, or even the author themselves. This book review will be just a review of the reading experience from a dramaturg’s point of view. Let’s dive into it! Book review of The Chairs by Eugene Ionesco As the version I read, was a Danish translation from before…

    Book review: Komedier og dødssynder

    *This book review of Komedier og Dødssynder will be in Danish since the book is only published in Danish* Jeg modtog et anmeldereksemplar fra forlaget Ravnerock mod en ærlig anmeldelse af værket. Boganmeldelse af Komedier og Dødssynder Handling Komedier og Dødssynder er en fagbog, hvori instruktør Kitter Krebs, undersøger de syv dødssynder parret med 7 af Shakespeares komedier. ”Kitter Krebs trækker i sin lille bog interessante paralleller mellem nogle af Shakespeares kendte og mindre kendte komedier og de gamle forestillinger om ”de syv dødssynder”. Selvbedrag og diverse dårskab har altid lokket mennesker på gale veje […] læseren kan selv trække parallellerne videre fra Shakespeare til vores egen tid.” – Lånt…

    Book review: The Open Door by Peter Brook

    Review of “The Open Door” by Peter Brook “The Open Door” by Peter Brook is a nonfictional performing arts book about some of the theatre practices Brook and his production teams have encountered, as well as Brooks own thoughts on these. I read “The Open Door” in Danish, so if anything got lost in the translation, I’d be happy to hear from others who’ve read it in English. I will however, review it in English, since I know it’s available in both languages (and others too I assume). “The Open Door” and Peter Brook Peter Brook is sort of well known in my professional circles. If someone I work with…

    Book review: The Comedy of Errors

    The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare The Comedy of Errors is a Shakespearean classic and here are my thoughts of it. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a book review as it is a play of a certain age. But as a part of the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge, and me being a thespian, I just had to read it! Summary In short, The Comedy of Errors is a typical twin-comedy-drama and very Shakespeare. Two sets of twins are separated by a heinous storm. Two of them end up in one place, the other two somewhere else and herein lies the premise of our plot. The pairs of twins then…

    Artist Residency – hvad er det?

    Hvad er et artist residency? Som udøvende kunstner findes der uendeligt mange tilbud om kurser, workshops, coaching og uddannelser, som man kan gøre brug af for at dygtiggøre sig. Et af de måske knapt så kendte tilbud til kunstnere er ”Artist Residencies”. (Hvis du allerede kender til residency-fænomenet behøver du nok ikke læse dette indlæg da det primært er henvendt til dem der endnu ikke har stiftet bekendtskab med det 😊 ) ”Artist Residencies” er et tilbud om et ophold et eller andet sted i verden. Her kan man få arbejdsro, sparring, nyt netværk eller inspiration til nye værker. Nogle gange skal man selv betale for rejsen og mad mens…
