WHO IS BANKING

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
It is night. A woman is lying asleep in her bed. Suddenly she wakes up and sees to her amazement that there are strangers sitting around her. And looking at her. They look like people who have gone to the theater. Now there is a knock on the door. In comes a man with a cable, which he begins to roll out. He says a Denmark fundraising show will be held. Now more people are coming: a quiz master, a dance group, an audience warmer, technicians with cars and chips and sports equipment and cakes. They say these are prizes for the big Danish history quiz. Large screens are lit with pictures of sad children and weak women from distant lands. Light shows are being tested, a well-known rock number is pulsating. The woman wants to protest, but suddenly finds herself as a piece in the game Star of Africa . She jumps from field to field, collecting diamonds and crashing towards the exit, but is detained by mistake in a Libyan refugee camp. Here she comes under interrogation and is convicted, but does not understand why or in what. She manages to escape, but when she returns to Denmark, her home has disappeared. The only thing left is a maze without windows and doors. There is a knock on the door. But there is no door. And yet it knocks. Banks and banks. Higher and higher…
