At the intersection, they get a new sofa
"At the intersection" is based on excerpts from the award-winning Danish author Helle Helle’s critically acclaimed novel ‘they’. A woman looks back on her life as a teenager. In flashbacks and fragments of everyday episodes, her mother’s terminal illness and her own young teenage life unfold.
The performance is a monologue performed by a female actress, Rosalinde Mynster. The scenography is simple, consisting of a collection of 3m high LED light bars designed by the audiovisual artist collective VERTIGO. It is a sensuous performance evoking memories through images of light, video, music and sound.
The individual scenes in the performance take place in the protagonist’s consciousness, dominated by the memory of her own and her mother’s lives.
Duration: 80 minutes (no intermission).
