The controversial performance group Signa producing an experimental ballet at the Danish Royal Theatre






We are in the ruins of the Danish Royal Theatre, in a destroyed and fever ravaged Copenhagen. The surviving ballet dancers are held in an endless dance ritual, watched over by self-proclaimed warlords. The time has come to a standstill. It is 7, 17 or 70 years ago that the Earth’s magnetic poles changed, no survivors are able to remember clearly. Everything is broken; houses, roads and memories about the world as it once was. Every evening the city’s last inhabitants flock to the theatre to be moved by the dancers – the only ones who seem not to succumb to the terrible fever, whose victims are gripped by violent convulsions and blind rage. The dancers live in the heart of the theatre and dance till they drop in a dirty arena surrounded by small units where they huddle together on dirty mattresses when they are granted sleep. In these makeshift homes they receive their audience. The force of the dancers is the only hope of survival, their steps contain the remains of the lost culture. Every night a ballet performance is compiled by handed down fragments – a kind of ritual competition where content and result especially depends on the audience.
