We wish to share this amazing project to as broad an audience as possible especially now as we have added Turin to the catalogue. We thus once again introduce CAMERA as a cinema for the Open Doors during CPH STAGE. This year we are screening the two full concerts and the respective documentaries. They will be shown as one and invite you into the cinematic darkness for 1+ hour of entertainment.

We have three shows per day at 10 am, 12 pm and 2 pm. Limited seating.
The films have English subtitles.

Tickets are free and are available here.


In this season (2018/19) The Lab Station has focused on creating a format to disseminate what an artistic investigation may look like – to a broad audience. We have thus created a work demonstration on the basis of a research project entitled THE ACTOR AND THE ÜBERMARIONETTE, which has been ongoing for the last three years.

It is an investigation of the artistic expression of the actor and that of the marionette and how these roles can merge into an entirely new scenic mode. The work demonstration as such is an artistic and pedagogical format for dissemination and learning. The audience is invited behind the scenes and drawn into the creative space.

Lotte Faarup and Øyvind Kirchhoff is joined by puppeteers Bjarne Kalhøj and Rolf Søborg Hansen.

Free tickets are secured through CPH STAGE website here. The event is in English.
