PAPIR OG PIXEL
Before the train, traveling was so much better
From the H.C. Andersen Hus press-kit
Magic and machines, paper and pixels. The Berlin-based artist duo BADABOOMBERLIN has for the first time teamed up with H.C. Andersens Hus – Ville Vau to create a new and playful performance that brings to life Hans Christian Andersen’s fascination with the modern technology of the time – the railroad and the telegraph line between Europe and America.
The performance revolves around the enthusiasm for technology found in the fairy tales, but also explores the fear and anxiety of technological development. Is technology good or bad? Does it bring us closer together or further apart?
These are questions Hans Christian Andersen asked himself – questions we are still trying to find answers to 200 years later.
