"WELCOME TO WAITING FOR THE BAD THING TO HAPPEN! – humanity’s las self-help Gala, where we will now wait and prepare ourselves to face the end of the world in the most meaningful and (of course) in the most BANGING way possible!
According to our calculations the end is going to happen already within the next 45 minutes, so we better get started!"
Inspired by the contemporary depictions of "the end of the world", WAITING FOR THE BAD THING TO HAPPEN explores with humour and equilibristic choreography the things we could find meaningful or worth a while staging and sharing when facing our own mortality - and our desire to go out with a bang!
The show is presented in collaboration with Bornholms Kulturuge.
Supported by the Danish Arts Council, the Nordic Culture Fund, Nordic Culture Point and Knud Højgaard’s Fund.
