PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO COVID-19, THIS EVENING ON HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN IS POSTPONED TO MAY 18TH.
Late in his life, the famous writer Hans Christian Andersen wrote that all poetry has two means: illustrating the red lifeline from God to us that runs through every man’s life, and at the same time forming an ecco of the reader. This evening will unfold these existential perspectives in some of Hans Christian Andersen's most loved fairytales.
Great Danes in the Golden Age is a series of four evenings in covering the work, lives and philosophical heritage of three Danish thinkers whose ideas and visions made it beyond the borders of Denmark already in their own lifetime, covering a time span from 1783-1875.
This evening, we will begin with the probably widest known of the three: Writer Hans Christian Andersen, introduced by Kathrine Lilleør, Ph. D. and Rev., Sankt Pauls.
Following the introduction of approximately one hour, participants will be divided into groups and take on group discussions based on a fixed set of questions.
After an hour of group discussion, we will gather around a light treatment of tapas and wine to share each other's thoughts and ideas.
Pia Søltoft, Ph.D. and Rev., Christians Church, will facilitate the shared discussion.
Price: 60 kr.
