Due to its great success, “Uropa, a dance and asylum show” directed by Christian Lollike will keep running on at the Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen. While, due to the inflow of refugees, “laws, treaties and human rights are under pressure”, the director explains, “we have provided a group of asylum seekers with a stage, some dancers, musicians and a few costumes, and we asked them to turn their situation, their past life and their future into a show”. In an alternation of stories and dances, 6 refugees from 6 different countries tell their stories and explain the reasons that forced them to leave their countries. The premiere in Copenhagen on 29th January was a sell-out. The programme included a short tour and another 9 shows at the Royal Theatre, all sell-outs, so it was run on until 21st February. Alongside Uropa, in the last few days the theatre hosted “a number of concerts, debates and other experiences to offer a further outlook on the notion of asylum and the situation of these people”. On stage, singer Jeanett Albeck, with a former asylum seeker who told his experience as a volunteer in Lesbo, Madeleine Kate McGowen’s short films and Andreas Koefoed’s feature film “At home in the world” about the life of five children arrived in Lynn, Denmark, and a concert by musician Mikkel Hess, who wrote the soundtrack to Uropa.
