Amazing architecture in beautiful surroundings
The audience is seated on the roof of Moesgaard Museums new exhibition building, which has been designed by Henning Larsen Architects together with the office of landscape architect Kirstine Jensen. Situated here, the audience can enjoy the view of the green hills, as well and the dance and the music. The sloping, grassy roof is perfectly suited to double as auditorium seating due to the incline, and the audience is welcome to bring blankets and cushions to sit on.
Food & beverages
In case of hunger or thirst, Moesgaard’s cozy café is open before, during and after the performance, where they offer cold drinks, as well as Nordic dishes. The café also has freshly brewed coffee, tea and homemade bread and cakes from their own bakery. Spectators are also welcome to bring their own picnic basket.
In case of rain
If it starts to rain before or during the performance, then there is a possibility that the performance will be cancelled, as the vinyl on the stage can become very dangerous to dance on when it becomes wet. Danish Dance Theatre will keep you informed on the website, on Facebook and on Moesgaard’s digital platforms.
