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)

The platform will host works of local artists and involves citizens, local associations, schools and scout groups as well as local and international artistic groups.

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

23.30 Towards the Milky Way

Birds do it. People do it. Oceangoing seals do it: orient themselves along the Milky Way’s faint band of stars. Even the tiniest insects can find their way by the stripe of light generated by our galaxy, and every night during the Festuge all kinds of nocturnal beings move by the light of this highway in the sky, the Milky Way, on their way to the Midnight Ritual at the park.

23.50 Centaurs of the Night

At midnight mythological figures, Centaurs and ghosts appear to meet up with real and fictitious characters under the glow of the Milky Way. They remind us of stories that belong to a poetic part of ourselves which lives in the shadows. In broad day-light it disappears. But at midnight time stops and a gentle wildness takes control of our imagination.
