We spent yesterday at the library in Vollsmose, an area of Odense heavily populated by foreigners, which makes it an interesting alternative to our everyday mainstream monotony. The main reason for visiting was the children’s play Blæst (Blown away) performed by the Theatre Madame Bach – a sensory performance, with extremely creative props that both Matthias and I enjoyed very much. At times I think they should introduce theatre into main stream education, as an obligatory subject, say once per week – I am extremely glad and feel privileged to be living in a country, where the arts are supported and there seemingly is a large number of independent theatres that can if not thrive, make a living or survive with the support they get from the state.
We rounded off the day with a visit to Vollsmose Center, where we tasted the delicious Turkish pancakes at Silas Hjørne – a culinary experience transporting me back to my years spent in Istanbul, and not only. I found them on the net as well, apparently they are famous!
