About the performances:
The Martyr Museum
The first martyr museum in the North will now be inaugurated in a former slaughtering hall in Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District. The exhibition will explore why some people will die for what they believe in. Our fascination with heroic people is not a new phenomenon. We continue to wonder about the motives that drive people to martyrdom. Do the martyrs of today differentiate from past martyrs, and what does it mean to die for your beliefs?
Experience the exhibition for free on your own or bring alive the stories of martyrs from the past, present and future with a guided tour led by our professional guides.
M.I.S. All Night Long
DON GNU’s last show of the trilogy, which deals with the modern man’s identity.
A show that starts where western movies finish, with the lonely man riding into the night. An an attempt to turn on the light, where the sun has gone down.
What happens when night falls, the film is long over and the credits leave a black screen behind?
DONGNU is back in wool socks and sandals, along with a 105 kg Lithuanian HAMMER THROWER and one combative Korean to understand the man’s back.
