special mentions

Special thanks to Line Jensen for accepting our invitation and taking a punt on us travelling to Norway. Thanks to novelist Marit Eikemo and actor Arild Brakstad for their contributions to the eulogies. We loved the Festival Club over at (and those beers!) over at Cornerteateret. And of course, to all the other performers we got to know over the few days in Bergen.
