HARDCORE FREEDOM by Esben Weile Kjær [SOLD OUT]

NB: Due to new restrictions regarding COVID-19, we have had to make changes in the performance of Esben Weile Kjær’s HARDCORE FREEDOM. 

Standing tickets become seating tickets, and the performance lasts 50 min. If you have already bought a ticket, it is still valid for the same day and start time. Please note that it is not possible to stay in the exhibition when it is over.

Keep your distance, wear a face mask and follow the staff’s instructions. In this way, we can best ensure a safe experience for all of CC’s guests.
We look forward to seeing you!

Experience the up-and-coming young artist Esben Weile Kjær in live performance at Copenhagen Contemporary until 17 December, where his exhibition HARDCORE FREEDOM transforms the room into a hybrid between a nightclub, a stage, an art institution and a fashion store.

 

About HARDCOREE FREEDOM

HARDCORE FREEDOM is activated continuously throughout the exhibition period by a number of performances. Here, the room is brought to life with contrasting dance styles from the nightclub guest’s uncontrolled dance over the pole dancer’s sexualized movements to the ballet dancer’s body discipline. The performance moves on the border between party and rebellion, where elements are moved, changed, built up or demolished, and the exhibition thus changes character with each performance.
