Scandi Six: What to Watch at CPH Stage 2016

Theatre and dance festival CPH Stage is back this year with a fantastic program of Danish, English and non-verbal performances that will scratch all your your theatre-nerd itches.

Here’s what we recommend:

List Marker: Number 1Next Day

This is part of International Theatre Nights as well as the festival’s opening performance. The play presents twelve youngsters age 10 – 13, all artists of some kind, in an isolated community. Where are they from? What will happen to them? It proposes a kind of creative person’s Lord of the Flies. The play is performed in Flemish with English subtitles.
