(Former title: Fodgænger / Pedestrian)
Please note! Free artist talk with Don Gnu after the performance on Monday October 7th.
You will never cross the street the same way again!
On a very ordinary day, four men move through the city on foot. They quickly follow the flow without questioning the stop dance dictated by the traffic signal, the strict rule of the road signs or society's other unwritten rules for good behavior. Until one of them suddenly decides to rebel...
There is plenty of raw physicality, everyday stunts and DON GNU attitudes when the ground under the four performers literally disappears and the rules, routines and common norms we all take for granted suddenly lose their meaning. A pedestrian crossing is no longer just a pedestrian crossing, and good behavior is no longer just one thing.
WALK-MAN sheds new light on everyday boring routines and the longing for freedom and a playful approach to the world. You will never cross the street the same way again!
WALK-MAN is the first performance in a trilogy about the extraordinary experiences of ordinary life.
