Lecture

Already seen by 80,000 LECTURE is enjoying both national and international success. LECTURE has played to audiences in Norway, Sweden, France, the Netherlands and Estonia.

The Seven Deadly Sins is a theme that has been used since early Christian times to educate and instruct followers concerning `fallen man’s tendency to sin`. Through loving parody and well-choreographed slap stick comedy, the play grabs the young audience by the scruff of the neck and shakes it until it gets the message. LECTURE includes morals and music, but first and foremost it is a comedy. An educational, ironic farce with a purpose: the acute questioning of moral norms.

Teenagers, teachers and parents laugh together at the irredeemable childishness of adolescent behavior, and the well-meant stupidity of the adult characters. LECTURE not only sums up the zeitgeist, but criticizes it as well.

LECTURE was created in 2008 by the staff of Baggård Teatret and Mungo Park, including award-winning director Heinrich Christensen, actor Nils P. Munk, musician Jonas Munck Hansen and award-winning actress Rikke Bilde.

LECTURE is performed in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish and English versions.
