9 hours

1, 2, 15 & 16 juli 2017 in Theater Carré Amsterdam. Adres: Amstel 115-125.

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’s rise to power, and how power changes a prime minister. The drama live serie performed a wonderful tour, sold uit, great critics and various nominations on theatre festivals. With Borgen Mafaalani invented a new live genre: bingewatching in theatre that lasted for 9 hours.

Last chance to see it:

We are invited to play Borgen again this year: 1, 2, 15 & 16 juli 2017 in Theater Carré.

Borgen masterfully portrays the fight for political power and the personal consequences for everyone involved. Birgitte’s battle through her first two years in office, her sacrifices on and behind the political.

Borgen, the 9 hour event with diner while watching changes all rooms of the main theatres into a set.  Actors and public are part of a live serie. An event through 14 eposides in and outside the main stage. A special comfort with its adiction, alike every bingewatching. Actors serve your meal during allegations of corruption, elections, debate, news, crisis and love. And whenever you wish you can change place of have a walk outside.



Birgitte Nyborg, becomes the nations first female Prime Minister against all the odds. She doesn’t know that her heart wil break. A fatal faith starts.

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

Our major cast of 30 performers include main roles for Malou Gorter (prime minister Birgitte Nyborg), Anna Drijver (journalist Katrine Fønsmark), Peter Vandemeulebroecke (spindoctor Kasper Juul) en Renée Soutendijk (politic journalist).

With throughout the 9 hours specially composed fantastic live muziek 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!

In 14 episodes you live with prime minister Birgitte Nyborg and her spindoctor Kasper Juul (Peter Vandemeulebroecke). Painful, funny, fighting for justice and good leadership.

A heartbreaking drama when prime minister Nyborg faces the loss of her family while fighting for a truthful society.
