Introduction to the show – The story behind WHO IS THE BANK
11. November 2020 kl. 18:45 - 19:15
WHO IS BANK is the third part of the Olske Orchestra’s trilogy “A nation’s self-hatred – Denmark between shame and self-esteem”. Where with the first performance SUKKER we focused on Danish slave trade, and with SALT in 19th century Denmark with national romantic golden age culture and violent social contrasts, we have in WHO IS THE BANKING focus on what the migrant crisis in 2015 meant and means for our self-perception Today.
This has required research in newspapers and archives, and not least a journey to the outer edge of the country, namely the border crossings at the South Jutland border with Germany.
Denmark is not a separate part of the world that has just been lucky and done well. Denmark is a rich country with a staged border. Denmark is due to i.a. war, trade and tax policies directly involved in the cause of many people’s escape and directly responsible for their treatment in i.a. the Libyan prisons. But you can not see that at the southern Jutland border. Here we just see the illusion of an idyllic, national construction, which kindly and legally restricts immigration in Denmark.
30 minutes introduction before the performance by playwright and director Lotte Faarup with the possibility of questions.
Lotte Faarup, playwright and director, founded the Olske Orkester in Copenhagen in May 2008 together with actress Øyvind Kirchhoff.
It is the intention of the Olske Orchestra to create theatrical performances within a sharp and experimental form of theater that includes the strong story, the physical language, the visual expression and the musical element.
