Teatret Gruppe 38, Terrapin Puppet Theatre, Trickster-p

All This Coming and Going

Free of charge: We introduce All This Coming and Going as part of the Aarhus Sound Arts Festival 2020 at Bassin 7 on Aarhus Ø.

The oceans has fascinated us for millennia. The gentle and generous, brutal and greedy sea. The mystical and mythical horizon has given us dreams of distant shores and exotic landscapes hidden beyond the reach of the eye.

All This Coming and Going is a library without books that tells the myths and stories of the sea; miracles; puzzles, heart-wrenching anxiety; silent crying, shipwreck and cry of joy. We invite the audience to delve into the mysteries of the sea, as we open the installation during the Aarhus Sound Arts Festival on August 22-23 2020 at. 7:30 pm – around 9 pm.

The library i part of a greater installation presented at Aarhus 2017 and Dark MoFo Festival in Hobart, Australia.

All stories are available in English text.
The installation is free.


Filled with moods of the ocean's mighty powers and mysterious whims.

There is so much to experience.
