FjORDfIRE&ICE: For nearly five years, Bob and Dana had a Viking show in mind. The world premiere in 1995 bears witness to extensive research and creative excellence. Re-creating props, costumes, set pieces, swords, helmets and the like from actual historical artifacts and archeological digs, they have built a show around the poetic and prose edda of the Vikings from Iceland, Norway, Denmark and Sweden.
They explore both the mythology and the legends of the gods, heroes, dwarves and demons of this northern culture of Europe that flourished for over 300 years and is still with us today. Giants, the World Serpent, Thor, Odin, Loki - the trickster, all come to life in a vivid and fascinating depiction of the Vikings! Humour, mystery, trickery and the final battle of the gods is handled with skill and obvious delight. See how Loki’s lips are sewn up by Brokk the Dwarf and how Thor gets his hammer, Crusher, back from the Giant Thrym disguised as a ‘bride’!
