Made with noTours. Phoenix – Wunderland Theater Company


Great project made with noTours


Wunderland invites on your own personal adventure! A sensorial journey at Aarhus harbour – through ships and forgotten buildings – into crevices and under the skin …

You show up at an address by the port. It smells strange here. The door creaks as you open it. You look inside. The sound of a crackling radio, a glass set down on the table, someone muttering. You enter a hallway, following the sound.

In Phoenix you follow the fine traces of yet unexplored places … the scent of rope and boat hulls, forgotten dreams of vanilla and childhood-dusty drawers, the shadow of a face similar to your own.

People and experiences lead you into the crevices of what you are, what you remember, what you fear and dream of.

Phoenix is an interactive, sensory performance developed by 9 nordic and international artists from various genres. You will be led through the experience alone, guided by an interactive sound system – that works via GPS – and by meetings with performers.

Artistic media: a hybrid form consisting of installation, soundscape, interactive technology, video, lyrical text, sensory experiences and performance.

The performance is a co-production between Wunderland and Bora- Bora.

Supported by Statens Kunstfond, Kultur Kontakt Nord, Aarhus Kommune and Bikuben Fonden .
