The doors are closed and we open up

The performative reading took place at the Danish National Museum for a number of their staff. The performance was inspired by the recent lockdown due to Covid. I invited musician Martin Klingman to play on his guitar during my reading. He is American and did not understand my reading in Danish. Noting was rehearsed. We did not know what the other one was doing. It was a gesture to demonstrate how everyone recently had been isolated in their home, and now was trying to find a new rhythm together.

In my text I read how I lost my way at the Danish National Museum, the only place I could find peace were by documentation of a cave painting. I ended up crawling into the mouth of an ancient female skeleton.
