Dear Angela and Viesturs

Have you forgotten Billie Jean, Brother Louie, Nathan Jones and Tesla Girls? Ten empty years have passed since our threesome in Stockholm and guess what? I miss you and I want to see you before the End of the World! This is a call for a reunion.

Meet me at First Hotel Skt. Petri in Copenhagen. I’ve booked rooms for you. Dress code: the eighties.

hugs and kisses XXX, Leo

“Where will you sleep tonight?

The theatre company TeaterKUNST presents the accomplished performance In the Nude in the foyer, bar, hall-ways and hotel rooms of the fashionable Copenhagen hotel First Hotel Skt. Petri’s.

Dividing the audience in three groups, each following a performer to his/ her room.

Mental Striptease

Imagine being a fly on the wall of those rooms! Who hasn’t dreamt of that? And this comes true in In the Nude…

Interestingly it turns out that the most intimate details are really the most common and in this way anonymous. Just like the hotel room is anonymous and intimate at the same time, a good choice of room and stage and metaphor for the entire performance.

Obvious is the theme of the effects of consumer mentality on our personal lives yet the performance does not preach or moralise. It is precise and tight, humorous and elegant staging of the rooms – the hotel becomes an image of the European condition, fluid identities, abundant choices, free market forces and borders…”
