After intense rehearsal days during April, Christine and Betina Birkjær together, we had a succesfull test run of “Walking Lecture on Ants” in the park of Moesgaard, where the students of Andreas Roepstorff were good test guests with precise response. See photos from the day on our facebook.
Christine travelled by train to Saxnäs North of the Artic Circle, in Swedish Sápmi, for Nordic Summer University’s winter session, and presented work together with Ragnhild Freng Dale.
The team behind “Walking Lecture on Ants” met in the snowclad hills, and began the work on our piece, while also making a very first test, inviting Augustine as our trial audience.
