An interactive performance devised as a hybrid between site specific, performance, installation and promenade theatre.
Aarhus Swimbath, also known as Spanien (Spain) to this day has a derelict and unused third floor, known as the Wholesaler Bath. Thus titled due the predominantly wealthy clientel that frequented the premises many years ago. In this site with its history, atmosphere and peculiar architecture we created a ‘dreamscape’ universe based on two overriding narratives: the body and systems deteriorating. The latter theme was inspired by Christine’s residency in Prague and the official theme for the Aarhus Festival week. The theme for the festival was “Eastern Europe – 10 years after the Wall came down” and Aften Land/The Occident perfomed in the Festival.
