We’re very pleased to announce that one of Europe’s most formidable storytellers, Mimesis Heidi Dahlsveen will be at this year’s Off the Shelf Festival, supported by Adverse Camber at Sheffield Tap, Sheffield Railway Station on Tuesday 22 October.
Heidi invites you to enter the absurd, brutal and touching world of Norse mythology with a gripping tale, The Death of Baldur.
The beautiful God Baldur is destined to die, but first the world has to be created, Skadi has to find a husband and the Midgaard Serpent must stop the world from falling apart…
Laughter and grief combine in a powerful, entertaining performance that brilliantly melds traditional stories, myths and contemporary life.
This performance is part of Off the Shelf’s partnership with the Norwegian Embassy tying in with the Norwegian Year of Reading. It’s suitable for ages 18+ only.
