A Christmas Carol
Gabel Eiben (US/NO)

16 December @ 16:00 (doors open @ 15.00)

Before the innumerable stage adaptations of “A Christmas Carol” of the 20th and 21st centuries, Charles Dickens himself would perform readings of his haunting holiday novella. This durational performance begins and ends with A Christmas Carol in both verbatim and misremembered versions. Gabel Eiben invites you to an intimate, meditative, confrontational, and nourishing afternoon and evening in the theater. It is an experimental mix of Dickens’ literary works and the creator’s own meanderings on the subject bringing another year to an end in the beginning of the “holiday season.”
