Lets dig into the national consciousness. Lets release the skeletons from the cupboard and let them dance on what we hold sacred in search for where it actually hurts.
Performed by six dancers on selected dates in late January, National Exhibition merges performance, installation and dance. The work is performed against a backdrop of the nations art and cultural history in the form of SMK’s collection and with it KASPERSOPHIE takes an investigative view on mono-culture, national pride and national branding.
It will shed new light on gems from the Golden Age of Danish art and draws inspiration from the architectural contrasts in the historicist and modernist elements of the present-day museum building.

You’ve Changed: A Trans Creative and Contact Co-Production
So, let’s, face the music and dance…
It’s fourteen years since Kate transitioned and a lot has changed. However, where gender is concerned, are we still stuck in the dark ages? When there’s no rule book, sometimes you just have to write your own.
Through song, dance, hard-won wit and wisdom, You’ve Changed shines a light on the ins, outs, ups and downs of transitioning. Challenging the idea that genitals equal gender, Kate literally bares all, exploring what’s down there and what’s up here.
Kate’s changed: that’s clear, but what she really wants to know is, have you?
Performers: Kate O’Donnell, Sean Murray
