Welcome to my portfolio of the monologue

by Jonas Grundtvig

What is this?

This is a self-written monologue as a part of my last term on the MA Acting (International) at East 15 Acting School and on this webpage you can get an insight in how the monologue came to life!

Who is this?

I’m Jonas Grundtvig, from Denmark and I attended the MA Acting (International) at East 15 Acting School the academic year 2019-2020.

The Main Inspiration

My monologue is inspired by myths from the Norse Mythology, as I have always had an interest in these mythical tales but never used this interest for anything but for my own entertainment. An interesting mention of Odin’s two ravens Hugin and Munin from stanza 20 in the Eddic poem Grímnismál (Words of Grímnir), was my main source.

Stanza 20

Hugin and Munin
fly each day
over the spacious earth.
I fear for Hugin,
that he come not back,
yet more anxious am I for Munin.
