England – city life and countryside

By spotogspindel | July 20, 2014

London is my favorite city in the world!


What a joy this past week has been, being in London both for work and pleasure! This fall and winter I will be working at Haugesund Teater with props and costs for Grease, the musical. Along with the director and the translator, we had meetings with the designer and production-manager. I can´t reveal any of the design, but I can tell you that it feels like a very fresh approach to the now over 40 year old musical. And of course it´s always a pleasure to work with wonderful and talented people like Takis, the designer. This is from his studio/workshop, where 4-5 girls have been busy sewing the costumes. But I will tell you so much more about this later in the fall, when we actually start working with it.


I love London. The busy streets, the colors, the smells, the people… But England is so much more than London. The country-side is really something special too. A landscape that has been cultivated for centuries, it breathes history! There are an amazing amount of houses over 500 years old in this country, houses with people still living in them. Among other things, I believe this says something about a people who treasure their heritage. This time around I also had the chance to visit one of my dear friends who live in the countryside an hour south of London.


Just a few shots to share the green beauty of England.
