About the performance
GARDEN is nominated for a Reumert Award 2018 in category of best performance.
IMPORTANT! Only one audience member for each performance - five performances per day, six on weekends. Tickets can only be bought online. Not at the door. Performance will be in English. Enter through the glass side door in the school yard at Bora Bora.
GARDEN was listed as one of the top ten best performances in Denmark by Den 4. Væg in December 2017.
GARDEN is a unique performance experience where individual audiences one at a time are immersed into a surreal world of adventure and intimate encounters. Traveling between the curtains of a dream like maze, they encounter an environment that would be best described as Twin Peaks meets Alice in Wonderland!
This immersive and participatory performance for one audience member is a 45 minute experience where you will have unique encounters that are tailored to your own imagination and desires.
Upon your arrival at your allocated performance time slot you will be greeted by a steward who will equip you with all the guidance you need to enter GARDEN. From then onwards you will enter alone into a transformed stage, through curtain corridors, dim lights and ambient soundscapes in a parallel world where sense is senseless. Through-out your journey you will encounter characters that invite you to become part of their fragmented narratives and question your identity and personal borders.
Who are you? Who will you choose to become? Which rabbit will you follow? The power of choice is in your hands as your choices effect the overall outcome of this inexplicable performance narrative.
GARDEN breaks traditional theatre formats and offers full immersion into a universe.
Recommended for audiences age 17 and up.
