Henrik Birch will be starring as Mikkel Borgen in Ordet (The Word) at Aarhus Theatre (Scala), directed by Anja Behrens. Ordet runs until March 19, 2020.
The Danish playwright and priest Kaj Munk wrote the outrageous drama about faith and miracles in 1925 in just eight days in a mad rush and wanted it to hit the audience like a shock to the soul. Later in 1955 Carl Th. Dreyer took Ordet to the big screen, and it is today regarded by many critics as a masterpiece, admired particularly for its cinematography.
