Audiowalk in Faaborg & Svanninge Hills

'Under Isen' is a critically acclaimed audiowalk through Faaborg and Svanninge Hills with Sonja Richter, Pilou Asbæk, Rosalinde Mynster and Elliott Crosset Hove on the cast list.

Experience a star team of actors who take you on an exciting time travel through the majestic Ice Age landscape of the Svanninge Hills. Together with archaeologist Sofie, you’ll walk from Faaborg town up into the hills that shelter the town. Feel your heart beating as you walk upwards with a loving H.C. Andersen in your ears, smell the pine forest and take a closer look at the softness of the hills that the Funen painters Anna and Fritz Syberg fell in love with.

The audiowalk mixes historical reality with fiction and passages from letter exchanges between Anna and Fritz Syberg as well as H.C. Andersen and Riborg Voigt.

"Jakob Engmann and BaggårdTeatret call their audiowalk BENEATH THE ICE invisible theater - but I swear I saw Anna Syberg more than once in Svanninge Bjerge."

"Pilou Asbæk is an excellent Fritz Syberg, and Sonja Richter plays Anna brilliantly. Two absolute top performances that are worth the whole walk. The sound quality and sound design should also be highlighted as top notch."

Riborg Voight

1806 - 1883

Riborg was 24 years old when a young poet appeared at her wealthy father’s gates one August day in 1830. H.C. Andersen’s diaries tell us that they spent three days together and later wrote letters to each other. It is also said that H.C. Andersen’s fairy tale The Shepherdess and the Chimney Sweep was written with Riborg Voigt in mind.

Anna Syberg

1870 - 1914

Anna Syberg was born into a family of painters in Faaborg and painted throughout her life. Together with the famous painter Fritz Syberg, she had seven children, whom they raised in a free and modern way. The Sybergs spent the years 1910-1913 in Italy, where Anna created some of her most impressive watercolors.

Hans Christian Andersen

1805 - 1875

The fairytale poet came to Faaborg to visit his friend, Christian Voigt. Here he met his sister Riborg and fell in love. Riborg kept a faded bouquet of flowers that the poet had given her until her death – and when he died, a letter from her was found in a small bag he wore around his neck.

Fritz Syberg

1862 - 1939

Fritz Syberg was a central figure among the Funen painters. After Anna’s death, he married her sister. On his grave monument at Drigstrup Church in Kerteminde is a relief from H.C. Andersen’s The Story of a Mother.
