Gjenklang – en førjulsvandring
Idea, consept and direction by Jon Erik Myre and André Lassemo Written by Kristian Landmark
An older woman takes us back to the time she was a young girl in Kristiansand. She guides us through the streets of the city, and tells about a very special Christmas from when she was young. On the way, the audience is drawn into the woman’s flashbacks, when the stories and the situations she tells begin to unfold in the form of voices from the various people she reminisces and talks about.
GJENKLANG – EN FØRJULSVANDRING is an audio-guided Christmas story that takes the listener on a walk through Kristiansand, which ultimately ends up in the heart of the city centre. By taking advantage of the technological possibilities, and turning the limitations of the corona situation into something positive, our aim is to stimulate and perhaps challenge the individual imagination. Through focused attention to places we normally take for granted, a walk around the city will give listeners an opportunity to see what the city has to offer with new eyes, and at the same time get that magic feeling that comes with Christmas.
“It was a lot of fun hearing about the local history and what it would’ve been like to celebrate Christmas back then, all whilst walking around and seeing the places that was talked about. e places that were talked about. This was a really nice pre-Christmas activity that really got me in the Christmas spirit!” – Margrethe Bryge
“I recommend everyone who’s in Kristiansand this Christmas to go on this walk! GJENKLANG – EN FØRJULSVANDRING is an audio-guided Christmas story that takes the listener and a walk around Kristiansand city centre and through its history. Can be experienced throughout the Christmas holidays. Finally I got in the Christmas spirit!” – Stine Sandnes
