CPH:DOX x Absalon: Burlesque, film & free dance

20:00 - 22:30 Salen 100 kr

In partnership with the documentary film festival CPH:DOX, we invite you to an evening of film, burlesque and free dance

We kick off the evening with a performance by burlesque dancer Mortini, followed by a screening of the documentary ‘Your Fat Friend’. Afterwards, we empty the room and create a dancefloor where we can release our bodies.

Lisa Sommer from Absalon (Dance Like Nobody’s Watching) guides us through half an hour of free dancing, where we can move however, we want to and celebrate our bodies just as they are. The free dance is for everyone with a body.  


About the film: ‘YOUR FAT FRIEND’ (96 min)
A humorous, personal and highly educational manifesto about being fat in a world designed for thin people. Based on the iconic texts and activist Aubrey Gordon, and six years of lived experience from anonymous blogger to best-selling author.
