Fragt /Freight

  • by

17-27th August 2017 large scale site specific production FRAGT (Freight)  takes place in the industrial shipping- and container harbour of Aarhus

Join us for a 3 hour journey by truck and boat, through the spectacular landscapes of containers from around the globe, and very big machinery…
FRAGT is revealing the story of an intricate global network of international freight, and of the gigantic vessels that carries everything that we consume, across the oceans of earth.
This original performance includes a “Straddle Carrier Ballet” and choreography for a 100 m tall container crane. Actors, dancers, filmmakers and musicians accompany the audience on a journey deep into the restricted areas of Denmarks biggest container harbour.
