You will hear the voice of a young woman. She welcomes you to her museum and asks you to help her bring it to life. Here she will exhibit her dispute with the present and her longings for a new worldview.
MUSEUM OF THE FUTURE merge theater and contemporary art, performance and exhibition. The experience includes every stage and room at Sort/Hvid, presenting new installations by Ferdinand Ahm Krag, Helene Nymann and Studio ThinkingHand. In a scenography by Franciska Zahle and Helle Damgård it is all staged and dramatized as a chain of dead ends and openings in the difficult and never ending, effort to reignite the political imagination.
The audience will receive headphones and enter the MUSEUM OF THE FUTURE in small groups. A new group is admitted every half hour. During the performance the audience will both be walking, standing, sitting and lying down.
MUSEUM OF THE FUTURE is a co-production between Sort/Hvid, Kunsthal Aarhus and Aarhus Teater, followed closely by dramaturg, curator and PhD scholar Anders Thrue Djurslev, who focusses on art’s portrayal of time in his research.
