I Al Evighed

I Al Evighed (Forever & Ever) is a participatory performance created for churches. 

The work is inspired by the Danish philosopher and theologian, K. E. Løgstrup’s, statement that we all hold each other’s lives in our hands.

An individual never deals with another human being,
without holding some piece of their life in his own hand.
It can be very little, a transient mood,
an sensation that makes one wither or awaken,
a lead one deepens or raises up.
But it can also be awfully significant,
so it simply rests on the individual,
whether the other person’s life succeeds or not. 

K. E. Løgstrup

In the church’s intimate space, 3 performers create a thought-provoking experience in which the audience, together with the players, can explore the church’s physical space as well as its existential ramifications. The church is a space created for contemplation and reflection – things that we often miss in everyday life. Therefore, the church space is the perfect place to create a performance that allows the audience to become wiser about themselves and each other.
