Julie R. Ølgaard and Christopher Læssø in new psychological thriller

'The Angel Marker' is an intense psychological thriller starring Julie R. Ølgaard, Christopher Læssø, Roland Møller and Stine Stengade in the leading roles. 'The Angel Marker' is based on an original idea by Julie R. Ølgaard, who is also the conceptual director, together with Esben Tønnesen. Therefore, Julie R. Ølgaard both stars and co-directs, in addition to have written and produced. 'The Angel Marker' is set to premiere in 2023. 

'The Angel Marker' is a brutal thriller about the criminal detector Laura, who specializes in cybercriminality. She has been off work sick due to a psychosis after a postpartum depression, but she coincidently falls over a case about a beastly serial killer. This wakes up her interest, and she decides, that it is time for her to return. 

Julie R. Ølgaard says: 'The Angel Marker' is on many levels inspired by my experiences when I gave birth to a child too soon. The trauma after a complicated birth and abortions becomes – even today – often overlooked or neglected. Therefore, the dominating theme has from the start been to see Lauras struggle to find a sadistic serial killer, but also feel her and her struggle to get back on track after at wrecked mind and a late abortion”. 

Julie R. Ølgaard has written the manuscript together with Yusuf Othman and 'The Angel Marker' is about both murder, destructive love, and mental illness. “The movie is a tough and honest picture of being a woman in todays Denmark. It is about the demands the world has and especially the demands we have to ourselves – how it affects us and in worst case destroy us. In The Angel Marker' we bith see Laura in her struggle to recover and stand out professional but also her inner personal and exhausting struggle, which unfolds alongside the investigation work”, concludes Julie R. Ølgaard. 

'The Angel Marker' starts filming on Monday September 26 in Copenhagen.

Julie R. Ølgaard skal på turné med succesforestillingen Mødre

Produktionen som i sin tid startede på Folketeatret, hvor den i to sæsoner spillede for fulde sale, skal nu ud i hele landet.

I forestillingen følger publikum livet som mor på tæt hold med alt hvad det indebærer, fra bleskift og søvnmangel, til ensomhed i forældrerollen og konkurrencen om alligevel at skulle være den bedste.

Fire nybagte mødre mødes i deres mødregruppe. Det arrangerede venskab, som de kalder det. Fire mødre, som hver især har deres udfordringer, glæder, frustrationer og nye opdagelser i moderskabet. Og som håndterer deres nye rolle meget forskelligt.

Julie R. Ølgaard spiller den ene af fire mødre. Udover at være en erfaren skuespiller, har Ølgaard også selv prøvet den livsomvæltning det er, at blive mor. Livet med børn er ikke altid rosenrødt og sødt, men kan være hårdt, og til tider, som forestillingen portrætterer det, ret komisk. Mødre præsenterer forældreskabet råt for usødet og bliver et identificérbart og humoristisk break til alle der selv har haft samme erfaringer. Og det er netop det, denne forestilling kan. Da Berlingskes anmelder Sarah Iben Almbjerg så Mødre, kunne hun se sig selv i både de små udfordringer og irritationer og i de helt store følelser spørgsmål, man også møder som mor. Denne oplevelse kvitterede Almbjerg med fem stjerner i avisen. Det samme gjorde blandt andre Kulturtid.dk, som skrev, at det var: “En forestilling enhver mor skal tage ind og se”.

Louise Schouw Teater, der har produceret turnéen, har også gjort sig særligt umage for at skabe rum til mødre blandt publikum. Med både aften- og formiddagsforestillinger er der gjort plads til mødregrupper i teatersalen og barnevogne med opsyn.

Julie R. Ølgaard tager sammen med de tre andre “mødre”: Szhirley, Lykke Sand og Sara Møller Olsen rundt i landet i efteråret 2020. Turnéen får sin premiere i Rødovre Teaterforening d. 15. september og spiller frem til 10. november.

Julie R. Ølgaard will tour Denmark with acclaimed play about motherhood

The play Mødre ('Mothers') portrays the colourful life as a mother, from the diapers and sleep deprivation, to feeling the sense of loneliness in parenting, while still competing to be the best.

Four new moms are meeting up with their mother’s group. The arranged friendship, as they call it. Four very different moms, who each has their own challenges, joys, frustrations and new discoveries of motherhood.

Julie R. Ølgaard is playing one of the four mothers. Besides being an experienced actor, Ølgaard knows this new role very well, being a mother herself. For all mothers, it is evident that all that glitters in babyville isn’t gold. In Mødre, motherhood is portrayed with both a raw honesty and satirical comedy, giving the audience a chance to both identify and laugh with the mothers in the play. And this is exactly what the play does best. When a theatre reviewer, from one of Denmark’s most established newspapers, came to see the play, she could see herself in several of the scenes. Both in the small obstacles and annoyances portrayed, as well as in the bigger questions you meet as a mother. This experience resulted in the production receiving one of several five-star reviews.

The play has in general been well received, and after playing two seasons in Copenhagen, with sold-out seats, the play will now go on tour. Julie R. Ølgaard and the three other “mothers”, Szhirley, Lykke Sand og Sara Møller Olsen, will start their tour on the 15th of September and will play until the 10th of November 2020.
