Best of performance in December: Suits you, sir

Legendary British sketch show The Fast Show is making a one-off trip to Denmark on December 7. 

The production is the brainchild of British actor Martin Popplewell, who is well-known to CTC audiences thanks to star turns in its pantos Old King Cole and Aladdin.

He obtained permission to use the material from Fast Show co-creator Charlie Higson (Swiss Toni and Ralph). 

Among the performers are Popplewell, Danish Rugby League president Steven Davy, and CTC regulars Nino Burini and Dawn Wall. 

Dec 7, 14:00 and 17:00; Krudttønden, Serridslevvej 2, Cph Ø; 125kr, billetnet.dk

A Folk Tale 
Described as Bournonville’s most Danish ballet, A Folk Tale is equally at home among the aristocracy as the troll underworld. A hero has until sunset to save his bride, but who will he choose? 

Dec 6-21; Gamle Scene, Kongens Nytorv, Cph K; 95-695kr; kglteater.dk 

Donka
Donka is a visual tribute to Anton Chekov, an idol of director Finzi Pasca. Acrobatics and circus techniques are blurred to provide an insight into his life. In English and French. 

125-350kr; republique.dk

Joyride & Your Majesties 
Test the limits of your comfort zone with Joyride, an innovative and bold dance show from Colin Poole. Poole is known for dancing that engages with political satire and ideas of power, and for dancing naked.
