Your very own adventure in Copenhagen’s harbour
You get a designated time for when you have to show up at an address by the harbour. You pick up the scent of rope and boats. The door squeaks when you open it. You peep inside. You hear the sound of a fireplace. The floor is covered with thick layers of ashes. Someone comes towards you and bids you inside.
You are about to embark on a sensuous walk mixing installation, soundscape, interactive technology, lyrics and performance. You will go through the experience all on your own, guided by performers and a GPS sound system, all while you follow the scent of delicate tracks leading you to unexplored places. The scent of ship wrecks, forgotten childhood dreams, and the shadow of a face which resembles your own.
Back in 2014, Phoenix, which hails from Aarhus, received an award from The Arts Foundation’s scholarship commission. Mette Aakjær, the director, works with sensory and engaging performances, and she has now assembled an international team, which has adapted the performance to the old harbour on Refshaleøen.
