Copenhagen is part of a new outreach program at Northwestern, ETOPiA: Engineering Transdisciplinary Outreach Project in the Arts.
The magnolia six artIsts' production of Copenhagen premiered May 2, 2006, at the Technical University Munich, Germany. Its unique artistic conception involves bringing live theater to a technical lecture hall to explore the humanistic aspect of the scientific characters in the very setting where these characters made their livelihood. Each staging has been adapted to the specific performance space and makes use of the blackboards, projectors, desks, chairs, stairways, and doors – making the play organic to its location. Since its premiere at the Technical University Munich, this production has been performed at the Technical University Vienna, Austria, and the University of Zagreb, Croatia, both with the production assistance of Ana Stojevic.
Proceeds from the production benefit CeaseFire, a an evidence-based public health approach to reducing shootings and killings. Learn more at http://www.ceasefirechicago.org/
