In Copenhagen I Belong 

On Monday the 12th of August 2013, Copenhagen Music Theatre drove six caravans manned with artists into the streets of Copenhagen. Until the 21st of September 2013 they were placed in different communities in Copenhagen. Here the meeting between artists – a mixture of actors, playwrights, directors, musicians, choreographers and composers – and citizens who normally do not use the cultural institutions was set to determine the shape and content of a number of performances throughout town. 

This case study was written up as part of Audiences Europe Networks 2012 - 2014 Open All Areas programme.
