The project will take place in Verdens Kultur Centret (Nørre Allé 7, Nørrebro) in Copenhagen, which is a cultural center that strengthens the cultural nexus of foreigners in Denmark. Through performance art, the invited artists will create a space of interconnectedness between foreigners and locals.

The project is divided into four parts that each last one week. In the beginning of each week, two artists will meet in order to organize one collective experience (workshop or creative laboratory) and one performance session that will be presented during the last day of the week.

Everyone interested is welcome to participate in the workshops, and depending on the interests of the performance artists, possibly also in the final performance sessions.
