Before Carré Borgen performed in several main theatres in The Netherlands and Belgium and has being selected as one of the best performances in september 2016 in Theaterfestival Amsterdam and Theaterfestival Antwerp.

Borgen shows how a prime minister rises to power and how power changes a prime minister. The drama series performed a wonderful tour, sold out, received great critical acclaim, and garnered various nominations at theatre festivals. With “Borgen,” Mafaalani introduced a new live genre: binge-watching in theatre, which lasted for 9 hours.

Borgen masterfully portrays the struggle for political power and the personal consequences for everyone involved. It depicts Birgitte’s journey through her first two years in office and the sacrifices she makes in both her public and private life.

Borgen, the the 9-hour event with dinner while watching, transforms all rooms of the main theatres into a set. Actors and the audience become part of a live series, experiencing an event spanning 14 episodes on and off the main stage. It offers a unique comfort akin to binge-watching. Actors serve your meal during scenes involving allegations of corruption, elections, debates, news, crises, and love. And whenever you wish, you can change your seating or take a walk outside.



Birgitte Nyborg, becomes the nation’s first female Prime Minister against all the odds. She doesn’t know that her heart will break. A fatal fate starts.

A prime minister wants to make a difference with all her heart and charm.

Our fantastic cast of 30 performers includes leading roles for Malou Gorter (Prime Minister Birgitte Nyborg), Anna Drijver (journalist Katrine Fønsmark), Peter Vandemeulebroecke (spin doctor Kasper Juul), and Renée Soutendijk (political journalist).

Throughout the 9 hours, there is specially composed fantastic live music by the Eef van Breen Group.







A special guest is former Heineken CEO Anthony Ruys (CEO Chrone).

As if you sit at home watching a serie, this time live!

A complete, 9-hour theatre event with cliffhangers, preambles, live music, and dinner.

In 14 episodes, you live with Prime Minister Birgitte Nyborg and her spin doctor Kasper Juul (Peter Vandemeulebroecke). It’s painful, funny, and a fight for justice and good leadership.

The wonderful love story unfolds between spin doctor Kasper Juul and the ambitious journalist Katrine Fønsmark.
