The Wake of Sleep, Side A & Side B

THE WAKE OF SLEEP / Side A & B Copenhagen



There are 2 live performances in 2 spaces in 1 city.
There are 2 live audiences in each space.
There is one intimacy in 1 space & another in the other.
There are 3 women dancing in one space & 1 in the other, with bluetooth, airdrop, and aeroplane, descending into a blue underworld, like hungry ghosts in a common silence.
There is a moving scenography streamed from 1 space & another streamed back, a mirror facing a mirror creating an infinity of ever changing images, a room, of a room and a room of one's own, like love sent back and forth forever, lying down, facing up, as if we are all dead. A collective witness of a disturbance.

There are 2 different performances: SIDE A & SIDE

For a full experience, you need to buy both SIDES. It’s not possible to see them on the same day, as they are developed in 2 spaces at the same time.


Maximum 25 audience in SIDE A & 10 in SIDE B to maintain COVID safety

DJS: 12 & 19/09 kl. 21:15, after party and discount drinks.
