About Post No Bills

”The unique dancer Kitt Johnson performs a solo which looks at man’s existence in times of crisis. A raw space provides the backdrop for this dark story, while Johnson’s tiny body and its simple movements take the observer by storm.”
Selected as a highlight by the CPH STAGE programme committee.

Choreographer and dancer Kitt Johnson has created yet another challenging, thought-provoking solo performance.

POST NO BILLS is a radical call to view crisis as a creative power of transformation; as an opportunity to constructively rethink our existence. In the words of the choreographer, it is “a performance that edges its way in where composure is irrevocably lost and the new and unknown barely glimpsed. Right there, we meet the broken and disillusioned human with empty hands. Sent back to square one and free to re-invent the beginning.”

POST NO BILLS has been described as ’a masterpiece within the crisis art of recent years’ (Politiken) and already brought Kitt Johnson several awards.

Assemble champion a working practice that is interdependent and collaborative, seeking to actively involve the public as both participant and collaborator in the on-going realization of the work.
