What do we fear the most? Is it radioactive radiation on the other side of the planet? War hundreds of kilometers away? Or loosing our dearest ones? What is the worst thing that could happen to you? To your country? To two persons? These questions, and many more are raised by the modern dance performance Malpais, by Recoil Performance Group, led by choreographer Nina Terrgaard. The performance is based on interviews with Danes made in January this year, in different smaller and bigger cities in Denmark. They were asked to answer different questions about what they fear. In the performance, a couple’s and a third person’s acrobatic dancing are mixed with light effects and video projections of some of these interviews. The result is fascinating! The last question asked is much more difficult to answer than the previously mentioned questions and now I ask it to you: “What is the best thing that could happen to you?” Malpais is on in Dansehallerne in Copenhagen until Friday this week.
