My inspiration this season is Tove Ditlevsen, a well-known writer in Denmark. I fell in love with her poetry as a teenager, it’s so beautiful and brave. Tove wrote a lot about girlhood and becoming a woman, about living life on your own terms and finding your voice. In the 1930s, she was a young working-class woman who followed her dreams fearlessly. We open the show with my favourite of her poems “Night Wandering.” It is extremely beautiful; reading it in Danish gives me goosebumps.
