Gettin' Hygge With It

Gettin' Hygge With It

Almeida Theatre · 22 JUL - 22 JUL

Why have we fallen for Scandinavian culture?

Overview

'It is wearing your pyjamas and watching Lord of the Rings the day before Christmas, it is sitting in your window watching the weather while sipping your favourite tea, and it is looking into the bonfire on summer solstice surrounded by your friends and family while your twistbread slowly bakes.’ - Meik Wiking, The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living

The taut, gritty crime drama? The compassionate welfare system and harmonious work-life balance? The knitwear? What is it about Scandinavian culture that has the British longing for the fjords? Is our fascination purely aesthetic or a desire to embrace the egalitarian values of the far North?

In response to The Hunt, this Almeida Questions panel discusses our Scandi obsession.
