Tårnby gets a visit – after E.T. from Steven Spielberg

Since October, a sweet creature with big eyes is visiting Tårnby and its citizens. It is looking like E.T., the extraterrestrial from Steven Spielberg’s well known movie. But there is also a bad guy from DIFO (Danish investigation of foreign objects) that is hunting him. On his quest he meets politicians and a priest from Tårnby. Who will make it?

Shootings entire october at diverse locations in Tårnby. Last shooting and premiere the 16th of November at Public Space Tårnby Torv.

With Boaz Barkan(GB/IS/US), Dorthea Boyi, Nicolai Dahl-Hamilton(DK), Andreas Liebmann(CH) and Tårnby citizens.





Philosophy for Kids

Tårnby Kommunebibliotek

15.-17. October 10-15 o’clock
17. October open showing 15.30-16.30 at Tårnby kommunebibliotek
A philosophy workshop for 10-13 year olds. The curious kids will learn to apply philosophical questions in a playful way with the means of theater, dance and visual arts. Based on Platon’s Cave Allegory, we will investigate questions about the nature of reality, fiction and illusion. Thinking is playing! Instead of drawing ourselves into brain nots, we create pictograms, sculptures and sceneries. The kids will learn about philosophy with creativity, self-expression and collaboration. Under the guidance of two theatre and dance artists, the kids will prepare a final presentation where they as experts, actors and dancers lead the audience through a playful world of caves, imagination and enlightenment.
Each participant receives a badge and a diploma at the end as proof of their commitment. The workshop takes place from 15-17 October at 10-15 pm at Tårnby Library, incl. lunch break where sandwiches and snacks are served. Presentation the 18th October at Tårnby Library and November 17th at Tårnby Torv
The workshop is given by Rudi Keiler Gómez de Mello (actor, director, philosopher and teacher) and Manon Siv Duquesnay (dancer, choreographer and teacher).

Public Space Tårnby Torv

25.-27. September 10-16 o’clock

Next to the dentist and the doctor at Tårnby Torv, you’ll meet Ms Vaginal Davis – legendary performance-punk-queer-icon. Prepare yourself for a rigorous and intense akshunist bootcamp/salon style workshop. Yes, yes and more yes this intimate exploration with gender/queer icon Vaginal Davis of Berlin/Los Angeles. Through various akshuns, film viewings, mini lecturinas, discussions and quirky exercises, the lure and lore of the freak will be harnessed for its outsider power and mined for rich territories of creativity. Get ready to rock the world of the freakazoid, from musicians Superfreak Rick James, Screaming Jay Hawkins, George Clinton, Josephine Baker, and Grace Jones to Trespass Cinema greats like John AesNihil of Aesthetic Nihilism Productions and one of the Baltimore Five, The Goddess Bunny (muse of Joel Peter Witkin, Marilyn Manson and late avante garde theater great Reza Abdul), NYC deity Kembra Pfahler of the art, music and film kollektiv Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black, the Future Feminists godmother of availabism and anti-naturalism, and Brian Lakso the Piano “Pjorn” King of Ohio and co-director of the gonzo electronic film classique Last Night I F*cked Your Mother.

It’s time you left pasty middleclassism and the Uncle Fishhooks of the world behind and were properly turned out.

Class will begin in an ungodly morning hour with an intro ritual, so dress comfortably in yoga style togs. This is an endurance bout so be prepared to werk it! No pre-requisites or performing experience required.

INEllipses 31.8+1.9 Tårnby
Hovering steps at Tårnby Torv Marked –
15 minutes dance performance followed by 40 minutes workshop.

In the middle of Tårnby Torv Marked the two dancers Manon Siv Duquesnay & Dasha Lavrennikov perform excerpts and transformations of traditional dances around the world : Brazil, Russia and Tårnby. The dance is followed by an invitation to the audience to meet at Public Space in Tårnby Torv 7 for an exchange.

From Brazil to Russia and now to Tårnby, with colorful rhythms, stormy encounters and hovering steps. “INEllipses” is a dance performance that emerges from the shared rituals and celebratory traditions of diverse communities and their residents. The dancers and choreographers Manon Siv Duquesnay and Dasha Lavrennikov have been working together since 2017, living in and travelling to various countries, from which they put together experiences and steps – from the streets to the studio and further into public spaces – . “INEllipses” explores an unstable state of being, finding ways to move on a groundless ground in the elliptical meeting between bodies, sound and architecture.

The performance will be shown at Tårnby Torv Marked, thereafter the audience of all ages is invited to a 40-minute workshop. There the movements, ideas and methods behind INEllipses are presented. Visitors of Tårnby Torv marked can show and tell about their own rituals and traditions. This collection of rituals from Tårnby will proceed in autumn, nourishing the performance, which will be presented as a longer and extended version at The Tårnby Torv Festival (14-18 November).

Place: Tårnby Torv
Date & time : 31.8 12.00 & 1.9 11.00
