Reckless conversation about smashing up chairs

By Karen Toftegaard

Leen Dewilde (Belgium) likes smashing chairs, tables, coffee cups and other stuff. She is part of a dance performance in urban space by the UK-based company Reckless Sleepers -> “A STRING SECTION”. The performance plays in Copenhagen during the Metropolis summer 2017. I meet her on reckless terms in front of Christiansborg (the Danish government building) – attempting to imitate the energy in the performance – with recklessness and humor.
