Weinheim | Yggdrasil
“An ash tree I know, it is called Yggdrasil, a tall tree, showered with shiny wet;
from there comes the dew that falls in the valleys, evergreen it stands above the fountain of Urd;
from there come women, many-knowing Norns, from the well that lies beneath the tree.”
Whether Lord of the Rings, God of War or Vikings - they all draw from one of the most incredible storybooks in the world: The Edda. And there is a good reason for that:
The Norse mythological world is rich in imagery and language, its characters Odin, Thor and Loki are the playmakers in a story leading from the creation of the world to its downfall, told from the perspective of the seers, the Norns, who hold the threads of fate in their hands.
What happens if they let them go? If the balance of the world of the gods is disturbed? If the connection to the mythical world no longer exists? If the divisions between the worlds of gods, men, of giants and animals, of man and woman get mixed up? Wit, heroism and adventure meet dystopia and apocalypse.
Theatre ANU brings the fantastic mythical world of the North to life in one evening with three narrators and live music.
in cooperation with the city of Weinheim
The event will also take place in case of light rain (except thunderstorms, storms etc.). We recommend sturdy shoes and rainwear. Please refrain from using umbrellas. There are not always paved paths. Unfortunately, this means that the production can only be experienced with limited accessibility. If the event has to be cancelled for weather reasons before one hour of performance time has been completed, the ticket entitles the holder to admission to another performance date of YGGDRASIL, subject to availability.
