Christopher Læssø er Robin Hood

Der er lagt op til humor, romantik og kamp for retfærdighed, når Folketeatret til efteråret åbner dørene op til det berømte eventyr i Sherwoodskoven.

Historien om Robin Hood og hans bande, er efterhånden blevet fortalt vidt og bredt, men er ikke blevet mindre populær af den grund. Unge som gamle, kan alle fortælle med på historierne om Sheriffen af Nottingham, Prins John og Broder Tuck og resten af banden i skoven. Men i denne version, har nogle af eventyrets karakterer fået en lidt anden rolle. Lady Marian, spillet af Marie Bach Hansen, er for de fleste, kendt som Robin Hoods store forelskelse. I denne opsætning, er hun dog også helt sin egen, da hun, og andre kvinder tilføjet historien, kæmper overlegent i forhold til den lille bande i skoven. Lady Marian må dog også i denne version, se sig imponeret over Robin Hoods evner med bue og pil...

I Folketeatrets opsætning, møder vi Christopher Læssøs Robin Hood, da han endnu er en ubekymret drengerøv, men det skal ikke vare længe. Påvirket af blandt andre de stærke kvinder han har mødt, vækkes hans velkendte vrede over samfundets uretfærdighed og snart efter går Robin Hood ind i kampen og gør hvad han gør bedst: stjæler fra de rige og giver til de fattige. Og det, med mange grin med på vejen.

Dramatikeren bag denne version af Robin Hood, er Tony Award vinderen, Ken Ludwig. Med flere Broadwayshows bag sig, er hans forestillinger blevet utroligt populære og er blevet opsat i omkring 30 lande. Og nu skal hans Robin Hood altså også finde vej til den københavnske scene.

Christopher Læssø er velkendt på Folketeatret og har tidligere optrådt på samme scene, da han sidste år spillede rollen som piloten Harry i Mød mig på Cassiopeia.

Robin Hood får premiere på Folketeatrets Store Scene 16. oktober 2020.

------------------------------------

Christopher Læssø is to play Robin Hood at Folketeatret.

It will be a production depicting humour, romance and the fight for justice, when Folketeatret this October, will open its doors to the famous fairytale set in Sherwood Forest.

The story of Robin Hood and his gang of merry men, has been told far and wide and in all kinds of productions. This didn’t make the story less popular. Nowadays, young and old, most people will know about the dealings of the Sheriff of Nottingham, of Prince John and of the deeds of Robin Hood, Brother Tuck and their friends. However, in this version, some of the characters have had their storyline widened. For most people, Maid Marian, played by Marie Bach Hansen, is known as Robin Hood’s object of affection. However, in this production, she has a story of her own. She, and other women added to the story, can match the skills and wit of any man. Still though, Maid Marian cannot help being impressed by Robin Hoods archery…

This production introduces Christopher Læssø’s Robin Hood as young and naive, but before long, an indignant fire towards social injustice rises within him and soon he can be seen doing what he does best: Stealing from the rich, and giving to the poor - spiced up, with loads of jokes and laughs along the way.

This version of Robin Hood, was written by Tony- and Olivier award winning Ken Ludwig. With shows on both Broadway and in London’s West End, his plays has become widely popular and has been shown in over 25 countries. And now, Robin Hood, will make it to a stage in Copenhagen.

Christopher Læssø is no stranger to Folketeatret, having previously starred in ‘Mød mig på Cassiopeia’.

Robin Hood will premiere at Folketeatret at October 16th 2020.

Troels Malling spiller igen med i hitmusicalen Midt om Natten

Den populære musical fra 1980erne rammer endnu en gang scenen med Kim Larsen og Gasolins store hits. Forestillingen skal først på turné og spiller derefter i Tivolis Koncertsal.

Midt om natten er en fortælling om frihedsdrømme, kærlighed og et spirende oprør mod “manden på magten”. Vi følger de to venner Arnold, spillet af Troels Malling, og Benny, spillet af Gustav Wolter, som har slået sig ned i minifristaden Haveje. Der går dog ikke længe før det søde, frie liv møder modstand og snart må de frie fugle kæmpe med alt fra rockere, boligspekulanter og intern strid om kærligheden til Susan Himmelblå.

Filmen Midt om natten blev en kæmpe publikumssucces da den først kom ud i 1984. Siden da, har Kim Larsen og Gasolins ikoniske sange levet videre og er blevet folkeeje. I 2018 blev historien om Benny og Arnold igen vakt til live, da Tivoli satte sig for at lave filmen til en teaterproduktion. Også det, blev en succeshistorie og Midt om natten turnerede i Danmark for mere end 150.000 publikummer. Nu er hit-musicalen tilbage og fra idag, 5. Februar 2020, kan man igen opleve de velkendte sange og skæve karakterer.

Castet er et godt hold af både rutinerede performere og nye input. Anmelderroste Troels Malling og Gustav Wolter som, ved sidste forestillingsrække, fik sit store gennembrud, spiller de bærende roller som Arnold og Benny. To roller, som oprindeligt blev spillet af de to film- og musikikoner, Erik Clausen og Kim Larsen. Derudover, kan man se Jimmy Jørgensen som rockerleder og Lea Thiim Harder som Susan Himmelblå. I alt tæller ensemble og band mere end 30 medvirkende i den stort opsatte produktion.

Da publikum så første teateropsætning i 2018, er de med stor sandsynlighed gået fra salene med højt humør og nynnede med på sange som ‘Papirsklip’ og ‘Susan Himmelblå’. I år bliver ingen undtagelse og denne gang, har man endda krydret hitlisten med nationalskjaldens sange, som ‘Langebro’ og ‘Kvinde Min’. Også anmelderne var ved sidste opsætning begejstrede og sendte stribevis af stjerner mod produktionen. Kulturtid.dk skrev blandt andet: “Skarp, rørende, fyldt med humor, fantastiske sangstemmer og dygtige skuespillere.”

Midt om natten turneen starter 5. Februar i Esbjerg, hvorefter musicalen fortsætter rundt i flere større danske byer, inden den til sidst spiller en længere periode i Tivolis Koncertsat fra 2. April.

Troels Malling og Aske Bang er med i ny sæson af seersuccesen Badehotellet

Den, for mange danskere, velkendte historie om det vestjyske badehotel, fortsætter med både uhygge og amoriner i luften, når nye karakterer, byder på nye fortællinger.

Krigen er kommet til Danmark og selv på Andersens lille Badehotel, får man hurtigt besættelsens konsekvenser at føle. Året er 1940 og der er indført kørselsforbud for alle private bilister, så hotellet er i tvivl om der overhovedet kommer gæster denne sommer. Men man skal ikke stå i vejen for danskernes foretrukne feriesteder, så inden længe, bliver huset fyldt. Blandt de besøgende er dog også tyskerne. De begynder stille at sætte krav, som sætter hotellet overfor en række svære valg.

Mens man kan gyse over tyskernes indtog, kan man som seer også glæde sig over flere nye karakterer. Blandt dem er den gode politibetjent Folmer Gregersen, spillet af Troels Malling. Som tro betjent til staten, følger han regeringens eksempel og lever, så vidt muligt, i fredelig sameksistens med den ny besættelsesmagt. Det får ham dog ikke til at fravige hans ansvar som fungerende betjent og han stræber derfor altid efter at være danskernes beskytter i den svære tid.

Trods krigen, er der også stadig plads til lidt sommerflirt. På Frighs Tobakfabrik har en ung og charmerende københavner fået arbejde. Han er 22 år, hedder Jan Larsen og bliver spillet af Aske Bang. Jan er en fri sjæl, kommunist og en ordentlig hovedpine for fabrikkens forvalter, som må beklage sig til direktørens kone. Direktørens datter derimod, bliver helt anderledes interesseret i den unge Jan fra København. Hun er selv vant til de samme rutiner, traditioner og destinationer og ser en eventyrlyst i Jan, som hun ønsker at udforske.

Badehotellet er blevet til en af de helt store seersucceser i Danmark. Siden seriens start, har danskerne siddet klistret til skærmen og da den forrige og sjette sæson fik premiere, slog serien sin egen rekord hvor intet mindre end 1.589.000 danskere så med.

Den 27. Januar 2020 får syvende sæson af Badehotellet premiere. Den kan ses på TV2 og TV2 PLAY.

---------------------------------------

Troels Malling and Aske Bang are in the new season of the hit series, Badehotellet.

The popular Danish series will soon premiere their newest season, presenting new characters who will bring stories of both love and war.

The War has entered through the borders of Denmark, and even in the small seaside hotel, Andersen’s Badehotel, the consequences of wartime is evident. The year is 1940 and a ban on private driving has been introduced. This worries the hotel owner, Amanda, who, having recently bought the hotel, worries if any guests will actually then show up. However, this popular holiday spot cannot be resisted and soon regulars, as well as new faces, show up at the hotel. Among the new, are the German soldiers. They are setting a list of demands for the hotel to uphold, and Amanda is now faced with new dilemmas and choices.

There are also some of the new characters, that are easier to grow fond of. One of them is the police officer, Folmer Gregersen, played by Troels Malling. Being a law abiding citizen, he follows the government in acting out his duties peacefully, although side by side of the Nazi soldiers. Still though, Folmer sees himself as a defender of the Danish people, and takes this responsibility very seriously.

Even in wartime, there can be room for a summer romance. On the local Frigh’s Tobacco Factory, a new, young cityboy was recently employed. His name is Jan Larsen and he is played by Aske Bang. Jan is a freespirited guy, he’s a communist and he’s a giant headache for the Factory manager, who goes to the director’s wife to complain. The director’s daughter, however, is intrigued by this new kid in town. She is used to the same routines, traditions and destinations, but in Jan she sees a sense of adventure, that she herself has been longing to unfold.

Badehotellet has through all its’ seasons, been a giant success. Since the beginning, the Danish viewers has been glued to the screen and at the last seasons’ premiere, it beat its own record of no less than 1.589.000 viewers.

The seventh season will premiere on january 27th on the Danish TV2 and can be streamed at TV2 PLAY.

Jens Sætter-Lassen spiller frihedskæmper i ny film af Bornedal

Skyggen i mit øje, hedder det nye 2. Verdenskrigsdrama af Ole Bornedal. I fortællingen, om den katastrofale bombning af Den Franske Skole, spiller Jens Sætter-Lassen en tilfangetagen frihedskæmper.

Den 21. Marts 1945 angreb britiske Royal Air Force Gestapos hovedkvarter i Shellhuset i København. Et af flyene styrtede ned ved Den Franske Skole, og da de efterfølgende fly fejlagtigt troede det var målet, fik det fatale konsekvenser.

Med Skyggen i mit øje har Ole Bornedal skabt en gribende fortælling om de mennesker, der følte angrebet på helt nært hold. Både på skolen, men også i Shellhuset, hvor to frihedskæmpere, spillet af Jens Sætter-Lassen og Joen Højerslev blandt andre sad.

Optagelserne til filmen gik igang for ganske nylig, og målet for instruktør Ole Bornedal er, at skabe en menneskeligt nærværende film, der fortæller et vigtigt stykke Danmarkshistorie og en barsk skildring af livet under krigen: “Jeg har tænkt på denne film i mange år og opdagede, at den eneste mulige måde jeg kunne lave filmen på, var ved at se den gennem børnene og de purunge menneskers øjne. At lave en fortælling om forundringen over krigens bizarre væsen og Guds manglende nærvær”.

På rollelisten finder man også blandt andre Alex Høgh Andersen og Danica Curcic. Derudover en række børn, som skal fortælle om krigens rædsler fra et helt ungt perspektiv, hvorfor den adskiller sig fra mange andre film om samme periode.

Jonas Allen, som med Peter Bose og Miso Film har produceret Skyggen i mit øje, er glad for denne unikke tilgang: “Vi er stolte over, at det er lykkedes os at skabe rammerne for en så stor og kompleks periodefilm. Filmen er en vigtig del af Danmarks 2. verdenskrigsfortælling, som vi ser frem til at bringe ud til et stort publikum”.

Filmen forventes at have dansk premiere i efteråret 2020.

--------------------------------------------------

Jens Sætter-Lassen plays freedom fighter in new World War II feature film

“Skyggen i mit øje” is the name of the new World War II movie, directed by the highly acclaimed, Danish director Ole Bornedal. It is a story of a catastrophical bombing of a school, that was never supposed to be targeted. Jens Sætter-Lassen plays one of the many people who experienced the raid up close.

On March 21st 1945, the British Royal Air Force set out on a mission to bomb Gestapo’s Headquarters in Copenhagen. One of the bombers accidentally crashed into a local school, which lead some of the others to believe that the school was the target. The attack had fatal consequences and 120 people were killed, of whom 86 were children.

With “Skyggen i mit øje”, Ole Bornedal has created a captivating story of the people who felt and experienced the raid at first hand. Both at the school, but also at the Gestapo Headquarters, where two freedom fighters, played by Jens Sætter-Lassen and Joen Højerslev, is kept captive.

Shootings started only recently of the film, which Ole Bornedal himself describes as an important piece of Danish history, that is a grim depiction of life during wartime: “I’ve thought of making this film for many years and realised that the only possible way to make it, was to see the depiction through the eyes of children and young people. To create a story, where you are left to wonder on the bizarre creature that is war and on the lacking presence of God”.

The fact that it is young children telling the story of the terrors of war, is also what separates it from other historical period dramas.

The film is produced by Miso Film, led by Peter Bose and Jonas Allen, who is excited about this unique approach and is looking forward to bringing the film out to a broader audience.

Other partners to the film are: Netflix, The Danish Film Institute, SF Studios, Sirena Film and TV 2 Denmark.

The film is expected to premiere in Danish cinemas in late 2020.

Forestillingen, der er opsat på Folketeatret i København og er på turné i hele landet, er en fortælling om den banebrydende forsker, Inge Lehmann. I 1936 påviser hun, at jorden har en indre kerne.

Her finder hun også sin gode ven og forelskelse, Harold Jeffreys, som bliver portrætteret af Troels Malling.

Forestillingen er blevet rost og har modtaget adskillige stjerner i flere store medier, som Berlingske Tidende og Jyllands Posten. Om Troels Mallings skuespil skriver Scenekunstmediet ISCENE blandt andet:

Nykøbing F. Revyen med Troels Malling vinder Årets Revy

Denne sommer spillede Malling med i den populære revy, som kunne høste flere priser ved awardshowet Revyernes Revy.

Nykøbing F. revyen havde i sommer et stjernehold bag sig, da de endnu engang åbnede dørene op til sketches og sjov i årets lune måneder. Til awardshowet Revyernes Revy 2019 vandt forestillingen Årets Revy og fik stor ros med på vejen:

“Her oser alt af overskud. Alle spillerne lyser, og teksterne rammer både Falster-folkets særheder og hele nationens indædte raseri. Det er en vinderrevy!”.

For Troels Malling var dette hans første optræden med Nykøbing F. Revyen. Det ser Michael Pless, som er revyens kapelmester, dog ikke som en hindring. Han har før arbejdet sammen med Malling og som han siger, er Malling “faldet i revygryden som spæd”.

Nykøbing F. Revyens producer fik også titlen som Årets Æreskunstner, mens den garvede Henrik Kofoed, som spillede overfor Malling, fik Årets Dirch.

Christopher Læssø spiller fange i utraditionel fængselsfilm

Læssø optræder i rollen som den indsatte Simon i ny film af Frederikke Aspöcks, som gir et twist på den traditionelle fængselsfortælling. Christopher Læssø fortsætter sin filmiske karriere med en rolle i det danske komedie-drama ‘De Frivillige’.

Sommerens film, ‘De frivillige’, er en utraditionel fængselsfilm. Det er historien om en gruppe vidt forskellige fanger der mødes som medlemmer af koret i fængslets afdeling for fanger i frivillig isolation.

I rollen som den indespærrede Simon, har Christopher blandt andet skulle tage flere kilo på for at tilpasse sig rollen og han satte pris på udfordringen i at spille en karakter som falder uden for nogle af de stereotyper han til tider ser i fængselsfilm: “- Hvis man ser en film fra det seneste årti, der foregår i et fængsel, så vil skuespillerne fortælle, at de har trænet benhårdt i tre måneder for at blive helt pumpede. Men der er jo kriminelle i alle lag af samfundet, og det skal man afspejle.” fortæller han til Avisen.dk.

I øvrige roller ses blandt andre Anders Matthesen, Jacob Hauber Lohmann og Søren Malling.

‘De Frivillige’ fik premiere i juni 2019.

------------------------------------------------

Christopher can be seen in the part of the inmate Simon in a new film by Frederikke Aspöck which puts a twist on the traditional prison story. Christopher Læssø continues his film career, which has included a part in the Palm d’Or winning film The Square, with a part in the Danish comedy-drama ‘Out of Tune’.

Christopher is educated at the Danish National School of Performing Arts and even before his studies started his acting career. Since then however, he has also had an impressive TV career as the host of some of Denmark’s most beloved shows such as ‘Denmark’s got Talent’ and ‘All Together Now’.

His new film ‘Out of Tune’ is a somewhat nontraditional prison film. It is the story of a group of quite different prisoners who meet as members of the choir in the section for those under voluntary isolation.

In the role of the inmate Simon Christopher, amongst other things, had to gain several kilos to adapt to the role and he appreciated the challenge in playing a character which falls outside of the usual stereotypes he sees in prison films: -”If you watch a movie from the last decade which takes place in a prison, the actors will tell you that they’ve worked incredibly hard for three months in order to get completely buff. But there are criminals from all parts of society, and that has to be portrayed” he told Avisen.dk

In other roles in ‘Out of Tune’ you’ll see: Anders Matthesen, Jacob Hauber Lohman and Anders Brink Madsen.

‘Out of Tune’ premiered in June 2019.
