Mens vi venter får vi gå...i jula og* (While we wait, we should walk...during Christmas, too)

Mens vi venter får vi gå...i jula og* (While we wait, we should walk...during Christmas, too) (2020) was a digital wandering theatre production by Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre), based on a concept and a script by Petter Vermeli, Ingvild Holthe Bygdnes, Mari Dahl Sæther, Emilie Mordal, Tarjei Sandvik Moe and Kari-Ann Grønsund. The production was an audio guided wandering performance (3,5 kilometres long), playing out in the streets of Oslo during the Corona pandemic, the winter of 2020.

The actors who had written the script also took part in the audio file.

The walk was the same as in Mens vi venter får vi gå from the summer of 2020, but some of the texts had been switched with Christmas texts. Among the new texts were Wham's Last Christmas, Alf Prøysen's The Town That Forgot It Was Christmas and Otis Redding's Merry Christmas, Baby, plus several versions of Silent Night.
