Welcome to a festival which offers the opportunity to explore, be provoked and seduced. You are invited inside in a co-creational space with 8 installations and performances which each offer you different ways to participate.
It all takes place at Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art, with threads into the city of Copenhagen. Sound images on local radio frequencies will add a complimentary dimension.
Togetherness, sensuous experiences, social encounters and the traces and spaces we create in the world are all in focus.
