Killing The Danes

A couple of years ago CPH STAGE Theatre Festival initiated a new CPH STAGE after dark concept – The Night Cabaret at Folketeatret’s Snoreloft. The doors opened from 22:00 – 01:00 and the program was unpredictable, delightful and thrilling.
Each night raised funds for a good cause, and Vivienne was delighted to be a part of the Night Cabaret with a 15 minute version of Killing The Danes at the Night Cabaret at Folketeatret's Snoreloft. The show was a huge succes and has been made into one of our best selling corporate events.

Anglo-Danish actor/writer, Vivienne McKee, shares with the audience her unique insider knowledge of all things nordic, and attempts to explain what makes the Scandis such a humorous, miserable bunch.

“Killing the Danes" is amusing examination of the Nordic Noir phenomenon;

Why are the Danes called the happiest people in the world when a viewing of just one episode of The Killing is enough to wipe the smile off anyone’s face?

Why do the Nordic people write creepy crime novels and create darkly depressing TV series and yet laugh their heads off at Dirch Passer and
Benny Hill?

Having lived in Denmark for more than 40 years, Vivienne is still puzzled by this conundrum and, while sharing her personal view of all things nordic, she asks the audience to assist her in dissecting what makes the Scandis such a miserable, humorous bunch of vikings.
