Land (Stadt Fluss)
Place: Copenhagen Contemporary, Refshaleøen, Copenhagen
Scenatet as always presents the peak of immersive contemporary music and art. Now the time has come for a Danish premiere of the highly praised Land (Stadt Fluss) – originally by Hannes Seidl and Daniel Kötter.
The audience is invited to join a temporary commune in rural surroundings and eat, drink, read and dwell along with the performers, music and film projection. Everyone is a part of the piece itself and creates a truly immersive and meditative experience. The premiere has been predicted as a milestone in Danish contemporary music performance.
Land (Stadt Fluss) is a unique and moving piece that internalises the outdoor space. The piece poses questions of how rural life can provide alternatives for the ever growing urban population and brings to life the distinct timeliness that separates countryside from city.
Land (Stadt Fluss) exists from 18:00-23:00 and audience members can come and go as they please. The event is of course in compliance with the current safety instructions for limiting the spread of covid-19.
Copenhagen Contemporary (CC) is Copenhagen’s international art center showing installation art created by world stars and new emerging talents. CC occupies the magnificent former B&W welding hall offering a total of 7,000 m2 of beautiful industrial halls with plenty of space to show the technical and large formats in which many contemporary artists work: total installations, performance art, and monumental video works. Art that can often be entered and sensed with the whole body.
CC is one of Scandinavia’s largest exhibition venues for contemporary art and a lively meeting place for a wide audience. CC creates collaborative partnerships and organises events with a number of different partners across cultural genres locally and internationally. You can attend art talks, art walks, concerts, creative workshops for children, visit CC’s own shop offering Scandinavian design, and experience the unique and historical city district of Refshaleøen.
Since 2016, CC has organised exhibitions featuring, among others,Bruce Nauman, Yoko Ono, Carsten Nicolai, Ragnar Kjartansson, Pierre Huyghe, Bill Viola, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, Sarah Sze, Christian Marclay, Anselm Kiefer, SUPERFLEX, and Doug Aitken.
