Juni Dahr -Norway
Juni Dahr, one of the best-known Norwegian actresses, plays
the protagonist in this exceedingly successful stage version
based on the trilogy by the Nobel Prize winner Sigrid Undset.
Kristin grows up in a sheltered environment in the 14th century
Norway. Everything changes as she meets Erlend. Her passionate
love for him overwhelms both her body and soul involving her
even in a murder conspiracy. Kristins life with Erlend
is unhappy and disappointing and she is left alone with her
family duties and responsibilities. Most of her children die
during a plague and finally she dies as well. Kristin is a deeply
religious person at all stages of her life. She is very human
and certainly not a heroine but she also proves herself capable
of selfless actions.
Two excellent jazz musicians accompany Juni Dahrs empathic
performance: Arild Andersen (bass) and Tore Brunborg (saxophone).
Stage design: Juni Dahr, Kristin Olsoni, Aimée M. Harnes
