‘Southern Bedfellows’ – Christoffer Berdal (DK)

UK: We deeply regret to inform you that the production of Southern Bedfellows has been postponed until further notice. All tickets can be exhanged for any other HIT-Copenhagen show,  to the upcoming performances or a refund. 
Southern Bedfollows the love relationship and passionate identity struggles between two children, both of them growing up on a fluid, non-binary gender spectrum – facing choices unseen by any but themselves.

As teenagers, they challenge the universal boundaries of sexuality, gender, poverty and religion. Sparks fly when identities are challenged. What happens through it all, to their gentle yet violent willingness to love only each other? Come and see…

Don’t miss this seminal fresh work by one of the most significant voices in  playwrighting today: American, non-binary playwright Riley McCarthy. Southern Bedfellows is part of HIT’s season focusing on new LGBTQ+ stories, in collaboration with Bøssehuset.

DK: Southern Bedfellows på CPH Stage er en verdenspremiere instrueret af den danske instruktør Christoffer Berdal. I 2020 opførte Jody Fish det kritikerroste stykke “Harry Clarke”, som ligeledes udforskede kønsidentitet. Southern Bedfellows (Sengekammerater fra syden”) følger to ikke-binære kønsidentitetsbørn Jo Ellen and under deres opvækst i den sydlige amerikanske delstat Alabama. Temaer som seksualitet, kønsidentitet, fattigdom og religion udforskes. Stykket tager os på en rejse ind i deres forhold igennem 16-år, hvor gnisterne flyver, og både deres identiteter og viljestyrke til at leve sammen udfordres.

Intimate dance form reeking of woman’s darkest bodily moments

UK: World famous, multi-awarded gothic glamazon, environmental scientist and burlesque genre-smasher Moira Finucane, streams  live from the depths of her bathtub, to us, her audience in Copenhagen.

Created in lockdown, and now being performed for HIT- Copenhagen’s audience, this intimate epic ‘Art vs Extinction’ lures you into a Livestream Interactive Dream of hope, extinction, liquor, propaganda and Antarctic ice.

“White Plague” – Ferodo Bridges (UK)

Trumpet – skal den fjernes generelt?

UK: Following a sell-out international run, and with a plot scathingly relevant to us all this year – Ferodo Bridges presents an uplifting immersive binaural experience about isolation and plague, here in Copenhagen.

Originally from London, this is a guest theatre production & immersive live stream performance piece & audience experience.

“10 years have passed since a fiercely contagious virus spread among a major city’s population, causing a mysterious white blindness and eventually, society’s collapse.”

DK: En total immersive teateroplevelse baseret på Jose Saramago’s bog Blindness om en epidemi af blindhed, der tager publikum på en rejse til de lyseste og mørkeste sider af menneskets natur. Forestillingen var oprindeligt for et publikum der skulle have bind for øjnene, men pga Corona, har de forvandlet den til en binær lydforestilling i totalt mørke. Forestillingen har tidligere været i residency på Teaterøen.

“Scrambled” – Rotem Nachmany (IL)

The Life and Death of a Female Fantasy. 

We regret to inform that the performances of Scrambled for CPH STAGE 2021 have been cancelled. 

UK: HIT- Cph is excited to present this under-your-skin guest production and fantasy dance/ theatre cabaret from Israel, a one-woman performance as part of CPH STAGE International Days – HIT hits the Stage.

A performance about the life and death of a female fantasy and riveting, physical, one-woman show. An intimate, yet unsettling dance performance featuring one woman’s journey to conceive, while dealing with her most dark and feminine sides.

A reality embedded in the toilet that has become a small, private temple in an attempt to create life in the shadow of death. When deep in shit, poetry is revealed and when the stench is so present –  it becomes a fragrance in her Fantasy Cabaret.

DK:En intim, men alligevel foruroligende forestilling med en kvindes rejse for at blive gravid, mens hun udforsker sine mest mørke , dystre og feminine sider. En virkelighed indlejret i toilettet, der er blevet et lille, privat tempel i et forsøg på at skabe liv i dødens skygge. Når man er dybt i lort, kommer der poesi ud, og når stanken så er til stede, bliver det til en duft i hendes fantasi kabaret. www.teaterbilletter.dk/forestillinger/scrambled/

“The Shy Manifesto” – HIT-Copenhagen (DK) 

UK: A HIT-Copenhagen production and a critically acclaimed success, The Shy Manifesto originally premiered in 2020 and due to demand is now being performed under CPH STAGE –  INTERNATIONAL DAYS. This hilarious and moving dramatic comedy is in English, with a tour de force performance by British actor Daniel Ash. This is his debut lead solo role in Copenhagen, after drama training in the UK and now Denmark, where he is currently based.
The Shy Manifesto is a tender, bitter-sweet coming-of-age dark comedy  from 2019, about growing up shy and along with the pressures and double-edged sword of the social media age. 17-year old bookworm Harry, stuck in  Bournemouth, is surrounded in life by overconfident people. He has pretty much only his own room for company and decides to face his own demons after the utter chaos of his drunken escapades the night before.
This play is as hilarious as it is poignant. Through the digital universe of his vlog, Callum delivers a potent manifesto, which reveals his intimate thoughts about sexuality, society, humiliation, self loathing, and ultimately his quest for acceptance.
Shyness has rarely been explored in drama and in this piece, peppered equally by hilarious and poignant moments, “the writing is a gift to actors: light and energetic, lacking in pretension and full of compassion.”

DK: Denne bitter-søde komedie var totalt udsolgt i 2020, men nu har publikum påny chancen for at følge med på scenen, nården 17-årige Callum går ind i sit digitale univers og leverer et stærkt manifesto. En forrygende forestilling med fokus på Callums intime tanker om seksualitet, samfund og søgen efter accept. Følg med mens Callum skaber en live-blog sammen med publikum og streamer sin generthed ud til verden.
