Temporary National Theater (TNT)

is an investigation into the nature and identity of "national" theatre organized by directors Anders Paulin, Mia Lipschitz and architect Tor Lindstrand for the Royal Danish Theatre between 17 of October 2009 – 24 of April, 2010. The main objective of TNT is to examine multiple potentials for a cultural arena; understood as a public space where citizens and institution meet to define collective ideas of ethics, identity and social imagination. The program is being developed in co-operation with institutions and individuals from a diverse number of fields and disciplines. The more different perspectives, expertise, experiences and strategies that occupy a public space, the more impossible it gets for one identity to claim sovereignty as a dominant narrative. Thereby allowing for a temporary transformation of the national stage into a temporary house of the people. MORE INFO ABOUT TNT
