Guest Performance: Don Gnu (Aarhus)

In A Snowball's Chance in Hell, Do Gnu travels back to the 1920s to challenge a mistake and all its circumstances. But what will happen when we fail?

Two men in the form of Don (Jannik Elkær) and Gnu (Kristoffer Louis Andrup Pedersen) engage in the cinematic scenes to describe a human being as a clown figure. The structure of the performance is inspired by the iconic silent movie universe and the times of Charlie Chaplin walking on a tightrope. But the question is whether Don and Gnu can stay within the assigned limits?

In an intimate and entertaining theatre piece in which performance, dance, video, music and audience interaction play together, we are brought into a world of simple human conflicts, failures and power struggles at the level where it's difficult not to laugh at the clowns in ourselves.

The music for the performance was composed by Alice Carreri.
