ABOUT SECRET HOTEL

Secret Hotel creates participatory performing art – experiences which are sensuous and at the same time stimulating for the intellect. We view Secret Hotel as a spacious ”place” with multiple and diverse ”rooms”.

At present our focus is to heighten the awareness towards our surroundings. We do this by investigating connections between us and the world around us. Inspired by the Deep Ecology philosophy, we ask ‘what happens if there is no difference between culture and nature?’.

Our work is often site-specific, but it can also be a dancing lecture in the gym-hall of your school, a walk in a landscape or something else. We wish to extend the notion of ‘theatre’ which we partly do by viewing the audience as guests and as co-creators. Our work can also be summed up in: ”Pleasantly akward and surprising meetings 1:1”

Secret Hotel was founded in 1999 by director and dramaturg Christine Fentz and dramaturg Synne Behrndt with the scope of creating a forum for multiple artistic investigations and meetings. Artistic director of Secret Hotel today is Christine Fentz.

Secret Hotel has toured abroad and in Denmark since 2008, and created a good nordic and international network. We are based in Aarhus, but have our own studio-space in the countryside outside Aarhus – here both residencies and performances are organised. Throughout the years we have also organised guest performances, residencies and workshops, as well as curated and produced for Danish and international artists.
