Once again, Odense Radiobiograf is presenting a radio play for your february-frozen ears and this time, it’s coming from a very special place: From deep within Anne Jeppesens heartache and her will to create a cathartic tale.

We’ve all experienced the feeling of something being crushed. For the lucky ones, perhaps it was just a favorite cup, that was dropped and shattered irreparably. For the less lucky ones, perhaps it was the months spent limping around with a cast on the leg as a result of something going snap and a cry of pain. If you’re outright unlucky, then, like most of us, it was your heart that broke. Smashed directly into a concrete floor and splintered like an iPhone screen. The hole in the chest and the tears on the cheeks have had innumerable songs written about them. Plays, novels, films, poems, books and podcasts have all been based on the feeling of the heart becoming homeless, so it’s something we can all recognize – and it makes us feel less alone – when the tears roll and the bottle of red wine is just as empty as the world you’re suddenly left in.

Anne Jeppesen wasn’t even able to take a deep gaze into the bottom of a bottle of red wine when her boyfriend left. She’d just given birth. This kind of story - a mother to a newborn, suddenly single and facing the necessity of working together with the ex around their little tiny baby – isn’t something Justin Bieber has penned many songs about. Which is why Anne created the podcast “Mit Energi er et andet Sted” (My Energy is Somewhere Else), so we have something to reflect on and in. On Monday the 17th of February, we can listen to it and afterwards speak with Anne about her story and her great courage in sharing it with us.

NOTE: if you have a ticket to “Apokalypse” on the same day, entry is free.
