The Rainbow/Regnbuen

Please note: An entrance ticket to SMK – Statens Museum for Kunst is your access to the performance, and is sold at the museum’s ticket office. Children enter the museum free of charge. Unfortunately, we have no more tickets left for Annual Passes and professional memberships of Dansehallerne.

Join us on an odyssey through the wonders of The Rainbow / Regnbuen, a universe of unexpected contrasts and sensory impressions exploring the endless shades of our inner rainbow. A contemplating dance installation inviting families and everyone from 0 to 100 to experience dance, design, and sound. Together, we explore the hope for diversity.

Five amazing dancing costumes created by Henrik Vibskov and choreographed by Ray Roa Alonso will magically transform both body and space, into moving installations and living sculptures, together with a soundscape created by Cristian Vogel that fills the space with its electronic mood.

In The Rainbow / Regnbuen we invite the audience on a journey with the option to discover both outer and inner rainbows. We pursue the hope for a diverse future – empowering people by respecting and appreciating what makes them different. May it be age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, and national origin. But does this future exist in our imagination only? How is diversity represented in our society? How do we create a society where it can flourish?

With an empowering and queer expression, The Rainbow / Regnbuen opens up to new paths. Perhaps not the path that will take us to the treasure at the end of the rainbow –  but more of an always striving attempt with glimpses of joy, where we challenge the forces of fear and hatred that continuously set limits for diversity and our inner rainbow. And just as that attempt never ends, nor do our rainbows.

The audience are welcome to go in and out of The Rainbow / Regnbuen, in order to experience the installation at one’s own pace. You can sit, lie down and stand up along the way.
