Circus from the Nordic Sea

The wooden sailboat Johanne has sailed thousands of natutical miles from the North Sea through insidious Skagerrak, to the open Baltic Sea. Her hull has experienced madness and scurvy, and under the cover of the night, her crew has conspired, been drinking and taught themselves new tricks!

In strong gale the sea fog’s heroes stand weathered, raw and ready with a wild and imposed circus-show! A mad and ingenious balancing act about life aboard, and the world on land.

With neck-breaking acrobatics from the mast, handstand in the wind, and precision second to none in everything that takes place, the crew of artists and musicians demonstrates what happens when the line of command disappears, and creative anarchy breaks free!

“Circus from the Nordic Sea” is an impressive and seductive circus-show with a duration of approx. 60 min. and includes livemusic by Swedish electronica-artist Jenny Nilsson and is recommended for all ages. “Circus from the Nordic Sea” is the 2nd in line of DYNAMO’s co-produced circus performances!

Arcade Delight

What do you do as a nostalgic when, do to 20 years of unstoppable technological advancement, the arcade machines have had to see themselves banished to the darkness? – When kitsch is no longer cool and we have gradually forgotten how to move on roller skates?

One option is undeniably and insistently to force breath life back into it accompanied by the tunes of Talkin Heads and Bowie and force feed the mischievous types with roller disco, shoulder pads and masterful circus acts.

Through a neon-lit retro arcade hall, you enter the pastel-colored parallel universe, to the sounds of the Donkey Kong and Pac Man themes. Stage smoke, light fixtures and DJs frame the roller skate disco dome, while a street of dilapidated sheds houses bars, roller skate dispatch center, air rifle shooting tent, a “redundancy horn” of a dressing room, face painting for adults, photo booth and street food trucks of straight out curiosities.

And then of course the circus!

If you can come dressed up according to the 80’s theme?!

YES!


Arcade Delight is an all-night event in a complete universe where you as the audience can move freely. There are very few rules for you in your role as an audience: Have a party and participate!

Arcade Delight is an immersive concept developed by DYNAMO, which means that you as an audience / participant, in addition to being included as a scenographic element, will also be able to interact with the acts and artists you are surrounded by.

You may want to dress up for Arcade Delight – feel free! Just like you might have pair of roller skates that you think the whole world should see – Bring ‘em – Helle, roll your way down here!

Any excess tickets are sold at the door.

Det får bära eller brista

An acrobatic performance telling the story of women’s strength

The research has its focus on Nordic women’s physical tasks during the last hundred years. It originates from interviews with the artists mothers, grandmothers, and great grand mothers. 

In Det får bära eller brista six female acrobats work together as three duo pairs, as two trio groups, and as an acrobatic collective.

They all have approximately twenty years of experience as circus performers.

Det får bära eller brista is a beautiful, physical and impressive portrayal of the woman as the bearing figure in life. The show caters to audiences of all ages, but we recommended that smaller children come in the company of adults.

Nordic folkmusic

The music is based on the Nordic countries’ folk music and tradition. New compositions are inspired by traditional folk music from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland.

The two musicians, the multi-instrumentalists Anna Cederquist and Anna Rynefors, illustrate and reinforce the performance with varied, warm, suggestive, happy, heavy and curvy modern folk music.

Portmanteau

A poetic meeting

To the deep tones of a double bass, two performers move around the stage. One is a dancer, the other is a visual artist. Both with rooted experience as circus performers.

Based on a portmanteau – a linguistic term for new words that combine two meanings – the performance examines what happens in the meeting between two artistic expressions.

Together, the performers explore space, sounds, light and movement – a poetic and visual encounter between bodies and senses that entices and challenges the imagination.

Like in poetry, Portmanteau does not dictate a clear narrative, but rather allows the audience to bring in their own interpretations.

DURATION 55 min.

POSTPONED – DÉJÀ

A living time capsule

In a space of 20 m2, the world’s entire history takes place over a span of 8 billion years through expressive movement, magical illusions and puppet theater.

From cavemen in loincloths to the DJs in tracksuits – a visual journey through time that questions our meaning, or rather: Our insignificance, seen in a larger perspective of the concept of time.

DÉJÀ is inspired by Richard McGuire’s award-winning graphic novel Here. It serves poetic and a humorous expression that composes images from different eras.

A slide show of what was, what is and what may come.

The performance is presentet in collaboration with Teater Momentum, and is shown at Ny Vestergade 18, Odense C

The performance is postponed due to the lockdown.

Ticket price on performance night at the venue: kr. 200 – buy your ticket in pre-sale. It is much cheaper!

WALK-MAN

Nerve wrecking everyday-stunts

You’ll never cross the street in the same way again! 

DON GNU digs into the tediousness of everyday routines in search of poetry and humor in a performance with muscular physicality and edgy stunt tricks.    

One ordinary day, four ordinary men take a walk through a city. They readily follow unwritten and strict rules of good behavior and norms of social etiquette until one of them suddenly decides to rebel…  

With trademark DON GNU “everyday stunts” and raw physicality, WALK-MAN is a performance in which the ground is literally swept away from under the feet of four men walking. In a world where rules, norms and routines no longer apply, a pedestrian is not simply a person crossing the street and common understanding of “good behavior” falls apart.

The performance is presented in collaboration with Teater Momentum
