a performance about FEAR

Malpais is a search to understand the anatomy of fear, in society as well as for the individual in different cultures.
Through documentary style video and a physical research on the anatomy of fear, the performance combines reality, satire and fiction to address one of the most used power tools in history: Our fear.

The performance is based on the idea of creating a travelling concept that collects and frames the fears and dystopian stories in 3 different countries: Denmark, Jordan and Honduras. The first performance in the trilogy, was created and performed in Copenhagen and was created on the basis of interviews with more than a 100 Danes in the age range from 5 to 80.
