March Performance: The end of the universe?

Sleeping with the Lights On
March 3-11, performances Tue-Sat 20:00, Sun 17:00; Dansekapellet, Bispebjerg Torv 1, Cph NV; 125kr,; 60 mins

The end of the universe begins with dance. Hypothesised by Lord Kelvin in 1850, heat death of the universe is a theory that states the end of the universe will come when there is no longer enough heat energy to perform work.

Choreographers Kasper Ravnhøj and Stian Danielsen took this as a challenge and have created a program that will enable them to expend enough thermal energy to push the universe another step closer to its own demise.

Mute Comp Physical Theater’s show is sure to turn up the heat. (CD)
