Knud Romer’s ABC during the 22nd Biennale of Art for Children
The theme of the 22nd Biennale of Art for Children – “Art as a meeting” is a slogan that opens up colourful thinking that inspire to initiate original and important artistic activities for young recipients. The willingness to take up this issue arises from the conviction that the essential aspect of all creative activities are the relationships created in a shared artistic experience.
“ABC” Knud Romer
One of the performances that will enrich the program of this year’s edition of the Biennale is “Knud Romer’s ABC directed by Sofie Christiansen. In this interactive spectacle, everything is important, because everything harmonizes, co-operates and works together: words, dance, music. The show was inspired by work by Knud Romer, a popular Danish writer who also became famous in one of Lars von Trier’s films. The author juggles words with great humour, while the composer experiments with music at the highest level of sophistication, and the actors go out of their way and try to cope with these challenges and keep the viewers’ attention, as well as make them laugh.
