Foredrag af Liz Jensen

How to be Danish

A humorous talk by an Anglo-Dane about the way Danes appear to outsiders, and the joys and pitfalls of being a foreigner in Denmark. Liz grew up in Britain with a father who seemed very eccentric. He had a passion for whipped cream. He worshipped the boiled potato. He craved marinated herring. And despite being a rabid atheist, he became uncharacteristically sentimental and dewy-eyed at Christmas.

It was only when she visited Denmark for the first time as an adult that Liz realised her father wasn´t eccentric at all: he was simply ….Danish. Since that time, she has learned more about her roots - but nagging questions remain. Such as: since when has white been the only colour for an interior wall? What´s so bad about conflict? Why do you all own the same lampshade? What makes you the happiest people on Earth? And, could the most powerful person in Denmark actually be a little green man?

Creating Fiction

What are stories, why do we need them, and how far can our imagination take us? In her exploration of the hands-on craft side of the creative process, from first page to final climax, Liz Jensen uses illustrations from novels, plays and films to analyse how storytelling - be it that of Homer, Hans Andersen or Hollywood - respects narrative rules that are almost as old as language itself. This talk is ideal for fiction-readers, film-goers, and anyone who loves writing. If the audience wishes a participative workshop element, Liz Jensen can include an enjoyable writing exercise - in either English or Danish - for participants.
