How do the world’s darkest TV shows come out of the world’s happiest country?

For the Danes, this is all business as usual. But for the rest of us, we probably need Killing the Danes by Vivienne McKee, who attempts to explain this phenomenon and other paradoxes of Danish culture.

This guest performance by the London Toast Theatre comes directly from the UK, having just played a successful engagement at one of London’s most prestigious stages, the Riverside Studios. 

A resident here for over 30 years, nobody knows them better than McKee.

The Millennial experience has been done to death in angsty blog posts and the like. But instead of words, this theatre concert integrates pop music into a young woman’s search for meaning in the world and the truth of a generation.
