Together with Warehouse9, we have invited two of our favourite artists to present work as part of Copenhagen Stage 2018.
(I COULD GO ON SINGING) OVER THE RAINBOW
30 May @ 16:45 - 19:45
For the CPH Stage opening party, FK Alexander will present the durational version of (I COULD GO ON SINGING) OVER THE RAINBOW, singing live to the recording of the last time Judy Garland sang ‘Over The Rainbow’, four months before her death, against a wall of noise. This performance come noise gig is an intimate, interactive experience of undivided attention and love. Stand hand in hand with FK, and witness others do the same.
With live accompaniment from Glasgow-based noise band Okishima Island Tourist Association.
FK Alexander is a Glasgow based Performance Artist whose work is concerned with issues of wounds, recovery, aggressive healing, radical wellness, industrialisation and noise music.

Retro(per)spective is a medley of 30 years of iconic lesbian-feminist theatre company Split Britches’ performances that made the politics of gender and sexuality accessible to all ages and persuasions.
Performed by Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver, Retro(per)spective provides a humorous slant on love, life, work and play, featuring excerpts from old favourites such as Lesbians Who Kill and Anniversary Waltz as well as material from their newer shows, Lost Lounge and Miss America.
Founded in New York in 1980 with Deb Margolin, Split Britches continues with the duo and solo work of Lois Weaver and Peggy Shaw, spanning satirical, gender-bending performance through to explorations of ageing and wellbeing.
