What are your beliefs, Denmark?
After years of studying in Copenhagen, Rasmus Berg returns home to his childhood village. With his arrogant attitude he soon unsettles the villagers, stirs the waters, and adopts the Latin variation of his name ‘Erasmus Montanus’. He makes outrageous claims, such as that the earth is round! And so the scene is set for hilarity.
Erasmus Montanus by Ludvig Holberg, one of the most prominent Nordic writers working in the 1700s, is the classic Danish satire. Provocative and adventurous director, Christian Lollike, gave the play a potent twist in this new commission that updated and reignited some of the key issues of The Enlightenment.
Erasmus Montanus premiered in 2017 as a part of the official programme for Aarhus European Capital of Culture. It went on to win the national stage award Reumert as Play of the year, Actor of the year and Set design of the year.
