07.30 WCWD Holstebro banegård

The wild, affectionate and playful animals fill the surroundings like an anarchistic storm until the Baron calls them back with a single sound of the whistle – and they are gone. A dynamic and unpredictable performance filled with energy, surprises, music and life. The street performance will be shown in schools, kindergartens, museums, parks, the train station, the walking street and other places. The project is the result of three years of workshops led by the actress Roberta Carreri with participants from different countries. Together they have worked with dances, different martial arts techniques and choreographies that can adjust to the audience so that everyone have a unique experience and no performances are alike.

10.00 ColourRide

Exhibition with artist Dorthe Kærgaard in Holstebro Library.

The exhibition is open during the opening hours of the library: Monday – Friday: 10.00 – 18.00 and Saturday: 10.00 – 14.00.

The paintings making up ColourRide are part of a larger series, where the artist Dorthe Kærgaard experiments with people and horse figures. In Dorthe Kærgaard’s paintings, humanity plays the main role. She attempts to portray our search through life with all its dilemmas and choices. The ideas derive from experiences, poetry, literature, the course of the world and by antique myths reflecting life today. Everyone will be able to see what the paintings represent. The motives contain many possibilities for interpretation. Dorthe Kærgaard paints recognisable figures and objects, but the viewer will in many cases probably wonder what is going on in the motif. Facing a work of art that wakes one’s wonder and curiosity is important to Dorthe Kærgard. The questions are often more fruitful and meaningful than the answers.

“Dorthe Kærgaard’s paintings are a reference to the inhumane. In style and choice of colour, a manifestation of geometry and harmony, but with motifs as almost chaotic balances, surreal combinations making the paintings stand still, offering a timeless experience and reflection.
The paintings are so saturated with impressions and plans that you feel the moment intensely, as if the moment is both now and always. They become myths. “(Torben Tangsig, 2010)

15.00 Halfdansk rapsodi Ulfborg

Iben Nagel Rasmussen, actress at Odin Teatret, talks about her father, Halfdan Rasmussen; a wild story about the skinny working class boy, who became all Danes’ Halfdan. With poetry reading, songs, photos and film fragments, Iben Nagel Rasmussen will create a collage depicting the more unknown side of Halfdan: his childhood, being one of many children, living with his family in a two-bedroom apartment in Christianshavn, the early youth with unemployment, political engagement of the 30s, a stay in a “højskole”, a travel on bicycle to Spain, at a time when the Civil War was raging, his encounter with other young aspiring poets at the Young Artists’ Club during the German occupation, and onward to the road of recognition and fame.

HALFDANSK RAPSODI is not a children’s performance, but rather a journey into the sometimes bleak background from which Halfdan’s grown-up poems grew out of, richly peppered with peculiar, fun, off centre and characteristic rhymes, which came to be his signature as a poet.

Director and performer: Iben Nagel Rasmussen, actress, Odin Teatret

16.30 Of Horses and Men

Director: Benedikt Erlingsson. Starring: Ingvar Eggert Sigurdsson, Charlotte Bøving and Helgi Björnsson. Lenght: 81 min. Country: Iceland : 2013 Language: Islandic with Danish subtitles.

Of Horses and Men (Icelandic: Hross í oss) is a 2013 Icelandic film drama written and directed by Benedikt Erlingsson and produced by fellow director Friðrik Þór Friðriksson. The film won the 2014 Nordic Council Film Prize. In 2014, it won the audience award at the Tromsø International Film Festival in Norway.
In the remote Icelandic valley, there is not much to do other than observe the horses, the neighbours, and the neighbours’ horses with binoculars. Undisturbed, the stallions and mares do what nobody else in the valley dares to even talk about: love. However, there is still a feeling of love among some of the valley dwellers. Kolbeinn and Solveig’s attempts at love are the subject of much interest for the valley dwellers.
Meanwhile, Vernhardur, who has a weakness for liquor, makes a name for himself on a Russian fishing vessel with the sailor Gengis. There is often disagreement about the riding routes between Grimur and Egill; Grimur generally prefers the classic routes on horseback, whereas Egill prefers riding through rough terrain on his tractor. Jóhanna, on the other hand, has nothing to say concerning her mare Raudka. One day, she encounters an injured old man. The religious Juan Camillo (himself) is seeking God on a high spiritual level. Above all, all the people in the valley share a love of their horses, and eventually come to understand one another.

19.00 Halfdansk rapsodi Ryde

Iben Nagel Rasmussen, actress at Odin Teatret, talks about her father, Halfdan Rasmussen; a wild story about the skinny working class boy, who became all Danes’ Halfdan. With poetry reading, songs, photos and film fragments, Iben Nagel Rasmussen will create a collage depicting the more unknown side of Halfdan: his childhood, being one of many children, living with his family in a two-bedroom apartment in Christianshavn, the early youth with unemployment, political engagement of the 30s, a stay in a “højskole”, a travel on bicycle to Spain, at a time when the Civil War was raging, his encounter with other young aspiring poets at the Young Artists’ Club during the German occupation, and onward to the road of recognition and fame.

HALFDANSK RAPSODI is not a children’s performance, but rather a journey into the sometimes bleak background from which Halfdan’s grown-up poems grew out of, richly peppered with peculiar, fun, off centre and characteristic rhymes, which came to be his signature as a poet.

Director and performer: Iben Nagel Rasmussen, actress, Odin Teatret

19.30 Wildcards for the Voters of the Wild West

Holstebro had so many elections that the old election booths have been replaced with new ones. To come in and out of the old booths the voters had to open a tight and noisy door whilst in the new booth you only have to move a curtain. The old booths have been handed over to us, the entertainment ministry. We choose – for the last time – to set them up on the usual line to hold an extraordinary election. But here the similarity ends and freedom and brotherhood take over. If the election is free then there must also be freedom to unfold in other areas?
Responsibility? Responsibility tends to lower the personal initiative and the usual sound striving. As in other sports related activities those who are outside and who has the energy should get wild-cards to get the opportunity to mark themselves according to ability.
We have so many resources. This is the wild west living deep in the soul of Holstebro. This is our roots and shoots!
Yes! There will be music and horses and many other surprises.

Directed by:Donald Kitt (Odin Teatret – Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium), Idea by Tage Larsen (Odin Teatret – Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium) with assistance from Lene Grønborg.


The performance is made in collaboration with Teatr Brama from Poland

Notice: the performance is free but tickets must be reserved in advance here.

A real boxing match between Jeppe and a secret opponent. To hear the final verdict, should we wait for the judge’s response? Or let the audience choose? at Kulturdivisionen Slagteriet
