Dangerous When Wet


– 02.10.22

A synchronized swimming performance, paintings underwater, and bodies gliding in purple slime are some of the works that can be experienced when, in the autumn, CC and Dansehallerne, a national centre for dance and choreography, jointly present the unique exhibition Dangerous When Wet curated by Mette Woller.

Based on water and wet environments, the exhibition investigates how to implement care in a divided world, where water connects us across existence and national borders. The exhibition focuses on collective forms of love, self-love, identity, and sexuality. These themes explore how water can lead to new ways of shaping communities.

The exhibition project spreads to several locations in the city. The main exhibition takes place in the Kildeskovshallen public swimming pool where performances and most of the works from the exhibition will be shown 30th September 2022. From early September, two of the exhibition’s video works can be experienced at CC. The project ends with the unique performance FIEBRE presented by Dansehallerne at CC the 1st and 2nd October 2022.
