Featuring work by Isabel Cavenecia, Katherine Borchsenius, Christian Roncea, Mette Therbild, and Christian Thomsen (Fjorsk) against the backdrop of a snowcapped Bavarian castle, the show’s fantasy atmosphere is created by icy surrounds. An accompanying text by Cavenecia and Thomsen plays with this wintry imagination, telling the story of a “mysterious individual who has been living alone in a castle for as long as she can remember, [who] decides to break free in search of human contact and light.”**
