FRISKABTE x CPH STAGE

Tickets

”My name is Kim, and I am a working class gay guy”. That is how Kim Mejdahl describes himself. He continues: “Inspired by author Glenn Bech’s novel Farskibet (The father ship), I want to create a music installation, because I have lived the life described in the book and share the same experiences”.

FRISKABTE is a physical room where one can feel the shame lingering after the pages of the book. A novel about a homosexual boy and man’s life in the aftermath of a father’s suicide and the ideal of masculinity he tried to live up to. It is a story about the life project it can become to step out of one’s social heritage and look for a new one.

FRISKABTE is Kim Mejdahl’s artistic interpretation of Glenn Bech’s brutal lyrics mixed with Mejdahl’s private life. Power prose, songs, baby photos, home video, electronic soundscapes, maybe a glimpse of the Danish artist Michael Kvium. The music is created in corporation with the polish queer musician Femmexy and on stage with Kim Mejdahl is Henriette Sennenvaldt. Expect electronic queer epic poetry: German lamentations pared with a trance party in hell.

FRISKABTE is an answer to an Open Call Sort/Hvid sent out in cooperation with the publisher Gyldendal and the concert venue Alice. In the fall 2022 we chose four texts and asked for artistic contributions on how literature can become music theatre.

FRISKABTE is presented in cooperation with ALICE og Gyldendal. The performance is a part of the CPH STAGE programme.
