Wunderkammer Theatre Company

‘DRIVE-IN’

NY TAP, CARLSBERG

14TH OCTOBER -13th NOVEMBER 2010

Ten cars were installed in the huge concrete HOF space at Ny Tap in a 1950s ‘drive-in’ movie theatre set-up.

Our network of artists were then invited to create their own unique performance or installation, working collaboratively with Wunderkammer.

What resulted was a project described as ‘intoxicating performance’ where we created a forum for artists to show their work and try out new ideas.

We also platformed bands and djs and visual artists encouraging dialogue between these different disciplines.

“Wunderkammer has created a simple but brilliant idea: allowing the front and rear windows (of the cars) to serve as canvases for various projections. It was great to experience intimacy inside the cars, along with the artwork. An intimacy that felt so much more intense having just walked through the huge former industrial Carlsberg warehouses.”

Rikke Matthiesen Hedeager, Event Co-ordinator, ‘The Play house’, The Royal Theatre, Copenhagen, Denmark

“Drive-In was a great way to showcase the work of experimental artists while also opening up part of the Carlsberg site for use by the citizens of Copenhagen. More than an art show, Drive-In was a performance, a social event and a revelation about the potential which exists in challenging spaces and places throughout the city.”
