“The Rapture – art vs extinction”
by Moira Finucane (AUS)
An Australian production on tour.
A surreal and spectacular series of monologues.
Audiences & critics across 5 continents call Finucane ‘transcendent’, ‘exquisite’, ‘sumptuous’ & ‘volcanic’. Now Finucane sets fire to her legendary variety oeuvre, reincarnating herself as a transformer, a snake always shedding her skin; writhing through a visual feast of prophecy, Gothic dreams, birds of prey, soaring wings and apocalyptic fairy tales.
Couturiers, composers, jewellers, sculptors, painters, performers, singers & faux-furriers. This is preposterous talent in a party on the edge of the abyss.
About visiting artist Moira Finucane:
Moira Finucane, one of the world’s greatest performance chameleons, literary genius and apocalyptic rock goddess brings her major new work to Denmark. A transcendent emporium of gothic-erotic dreams, rock’n’roll angels, soul-searing music, skin-shedding tales, and total art.
Dripping with visual art relics, porcelain icicles, & an otherworldly choir, The Rapture is a cult & shimmering throwdown.
“Moira Finucane’s gothic appropriation of a Catholic Mass, is a surreal and spectacular series of monologues, most of them addressing issues of climate change, feminism, and surprisingly, given the shape of the vehicle, only a little of religion. The high priest(ess)-creator is a role she’s made for herself, and she takes it with all the confidence you’d expect of one of Melbourne’s most iconic performers. The action is delivered with an intensity that shifts at times between the charming and the vicious, the histrionic and the droll, the pathetic and the passionate.”
(Daily Review, Australia)
“the white plague”
by Ferodo Bridges (UK)
Don’t miss this edgy, immersive theatre experience, which keeps the audience – literally – in the dark!
Following a sell-out international run, Ferodo Bridges present the immersive production, THE WHITE PLAGUE, experienced in ‘white blindness’ for a strictly limited number of audience members.
When a mysterious and fiercely contagious virus starts spreading among a major city’s population, causing all infected victims to lose their sight, the government takes emergency action and isolates those affected in unprepared quarantine facilities. As the consequences of the epidemic are revealed, citizens are driven to expose the very brightest and darkest aspects of their human nature. Who do we become when faced with discrimination, dehumanisation and extinction?
★★★★★ “A dystopian immersive masterpiece – UNMISSABLE!” (ToDoList London)
★★★★ “A theatrical experience that will stay with you for a long time.” (London Theatre 1)

by Rotem Nachmany (Israel)
An intimate yet unsettling performance featuring a 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 comes out, and when the stench is so present it becomes a fragrance in her Fantasy Cabaret…
