In collaboration with Dome of Visions, Theatrum Mundi occupied the temporary Dome -built by NCC- on Copenhagen’s harbour front, for six days in April, conducting an interdisciplinary design charette to imagine what can be done to repair the leftover spaces in this part of Copenhagen. This repair might be physical, temporal, sonic, visual, political, or a mixture of all this. With daily interventions (masterclasses and crits) from established creators in our network, the meeting resulted in a new conversation about urban life and in a public exhibition of the outcomes on the final day, with participation from the municipal authorities.
