An open air performance in the picturesque valley “Holkadalen” in Gudhjem – for all ages and all nationalities.

“The rooks are coming!” is about life on Bornholm in 2018 inspired by the local bird life. It is about travelling the world or staying in one place, about silence and hectic activity, about following your own head or being part of the group – and about how it is to live in a world that is global and local at the same time.

Four actors meet on Bornholm to create the out door performance without a manuscript (devised theatre).The artists are working as a team, translating local themes and issues to visual theatre art in an out door performance for families, tourist and local ’bornholmere’.
