A performance about regaining courage

With a radio receiver in your ear, you are dispatched on a guided city walk through Ørestad.  As you walk, the setting changes before your very eyes, and before you know it, you have to go below ground. Down there you are whirled through a hypnotic world of interactive sound and video, and suddenly you find yourself outside time and space.

You have been catapulted back to something reminiscent of 1989, when Europe demolished The Berlin Wall. You meet the woman who was once a rebel leader, but who has now returned to her past in search of herself. You become involved in her search, and what began as a fairly harmless city walk, develops into a journey towards death.

Tietgenkollegiet provides the live backdrop for this unique musical drama produced by OperaNord and Sifenly New Media Studio in Beijing. The performance was developed over a couple of years by pioneering Chinese and Danish artists, who mix text, sound and digital media with opera, butoh dance and throat singing.
