The M/S Half Machine events featured dancers, artists and musicians from all over the world, experimenting and collaborating to create performances and interactive installations onboard our art ship. Events was also part of the first Metropolis Biennale.

This project launched art ship M/S Half Machine into public consciousness, as a new platform for interactive art, music, performance and events in Copenhagen.

The artists onboard was connected through the Half Machine project, and managed the near impossible task of restoring a 580 tons old and rusty wreck into a functional, safe and highly original floating space for art and events.
M/S Half Machine 07, also called North Machine, was produced by Copenhagen Dream House and directed by Danish artist and choreographer Pipaluk Supernova in collaboration with the artists.
Half Machine 07 and North Machine 07 was supported by Copenhagen International Theater, Metropolis Biennale, By og Havn, Nordic Culture Foundation, KODA and Københavns Kulturfond.
