A DEBATE AS A NATIONAL PORTRAIT
Så længe jeg lever or "As Long as I Live" taken from the title of a famous Danish song, was a debate staged at the Theatre Får302 in September of 2008.
A cultural debate amongst prominent politicians, artists, and scholars was arranged to discuss the state of the Danish culture after 10 years of a liberal/conservative government.
Panelists discussed the following topics in 20 minute segments:
- What is Liberalism and does it exist in Denmark today?
- Who controls the media and who is it's audience?
- Who is responsible for defining Danish culture?
The debates were transcribed and made into a play to be performed in future theatrical contexts.
