Slow. An Evening About the Body

/ 07. March 2019
5:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Imagine having only a body to tell stories with: no voice, no scenography. That is the lot of the sculptor. On Thursday 7th March we focus on the body’s many expressions.

In the evening you can experience the newly-opened special exhibition “Perfect Poses?” and listen to Rune Frederiksen, Head of Collections at the Glyptotek, talk about poses and ideals in the art of sculpture from ancient times right up to the present. You can also meet Nikolaj Hübbe, Ballet Master at the Royal Theatre in dialogue with journalist Rune Skyum-Nielsen and come with us on a guided tour concerning the cult of the body in antiquity. We explore how the body has been depicted in art across time, gender and culture.

Performance collective Disturbing Business both performs and invites you to vogue sessions where you yourself can try your skill with expressive dance poses.

Dance slow disturbing business

And as usual, Slow. will be offering masses of art, beer, food and atmosphere until Swedish musician Mariam the Believer rounds off the evening with a good-night song.

Guided tours and talks will be in Danish.
