As daily life resumes and the economic machines gear up their engines, our theatres remain shut. Icons of another cultural era. A time when bodies sought the theatre space. For 12 hours the spirit of dance will wander like a hungry ghost from stage to stage, from closed door to closed door, from empty stage to empty stage.
Visiting 12 stages, big and small throughout the city: Dansekapellet, Østre Gasværk Teater, Pakhus 11, Republique, Bådteatret, Får302, Skuespilhuset, Operaen, The Royal Theatre, Husets Teater, Sort/Hvid and Warehouse9. 12 dances outside closed theatres.
DOCUMENTATION MAY 13
