Oceans of culture in the Ã˜resund region
More than 100 different cultural events taking place at more than 25 museums, theatres, and concert venues. That is Kulturbro 2002 - and it is just around the corner.
For many years, the Sound divided the neighbouring countries Denmark and Sweden. But that all ended in 2000 with the completion of the Ã˜resund bridge. Even before the bridge planted its concrete feet solidly in the Sound, however, many worked tirelessly to build a cultural bridge between the two countries. The result was the Kulturbro biennial, whose proud arch first graced the gap in 2000.
Now, another Kulturbro biennial is ready to be launched. From Roskilde and Copenhagen in the west to MalmÃ¶ and Ystad in the east, visitors can enjoy exhibitions, concerts, and performances of the highest international standard.
Even though this is just the second Kulturbro biennial, the remarkable US stage director Robert Wilson is already something of a veteran on the Kulturbro scene: In 2000, he was the man behind the hugely successful production of Woyzeck which has subsequently toured most of Europe. This autumn, Woyzeck will be performed in both London and Sarajevo, and the play opens in Los Angeles on 3 December.
For Kulturbro 2002, Robert Wilson will create an entirely new play - The White Town - which constitutes a tribute to the Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen. In addition to this, Robert Wilson is the central figure of the project Come In - Go Out, where art students from the entire Ã˜resund region join forces to create nine pictures that will be exhibited at cultural institutions throughout the region.
Arne Jacobsen turns up again as the star of the major exhibition Arne Jacobsen - Absolutely Modern at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art north of Copenhagen. The museum presents all aspects of Jacobsen's work, and has also asked a number of international architects to create their own space on the basis of particularly Jacobsenesque qualities.
The dramatic arts see yet another major international figure presenting a new performance. The outstanding Asian stage director Ong Keng Sen has created Search:Hamlet, a radical new take on Shakespeare's Hamlet. The production involves musicians and actors from several continents, and the costumes are created by the Japanese designer Koji Hamai - famed in world of fashion for his work with Issey Miyake.
Kulturbro 2002 is the greatest single cultural event in the Ã˜resund region. In addition to Arne Jacobsen, Robert Wilson, and Ong Keng Sen, the Kulturbro 2002 biennial features:
