Martin Rosengaard, Sixten Kai Nielsen and William Rawlings from Wooloo (CPH) are constructing site-specific sculptures and interventions aiming to imagine new social systems.
With BONUS BALLS they comment with satiric poignancy on global economical developments. This work has been exhibited 2012 in the public space during the COPENHAGEN ART FESTIVAL. 2015 it is finally restaged in the eurozone in Hamburg. After a currency exchange visitors are invited to pay with 20,- DKK coins in exchange for a taste of candy of extraordinary flavor.

Motorium - Performance with Julie Gufler and Jivan Frenster
Friday, 04.09.15, 20:00 at Circus Polaris

Julie Gufler (CPH) and Jivan Frenster (HH) work interdisciplinarily when sculpting actions, the body and utter wonder. MOTORIUM at UNTEN AM HAVN 2015 is their first collaborative performance, dealing with systems of encounter, fleeting situations and the very concept of you and I.
MOTORIUM. The sum of current circumstances, which influences the action.

One begins a tap dancer but becomes an athlete at thinking.
Ich finde Tanzen kommt am Schluss. Wenn man seinen Frieden mit dem Denken gefunden hat.
The difference between dancing alone and dancing by myself. Between actual and real.
Darüber nachdenken was die Anderen über dich denken als Tanz.
Some people would join around a circle to hold hands and step back and forth while cheering.
Oder die Befürchtung, dass die Anderen Idioten sind.
I cannot hear what you are saying now that everybody is looking.
Aufregung als Energie.

Delicate Bridges - Performance
with Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen & Anik Lazar
Saturday, 5.9.15, 20:00 at Circus Polaris

The video and performance artist Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen (CPH) collects, revises and universalises such themes as identity, culture and religion in her productions. In her performances, the artist uses texts, compositions and visual elements, such as decorations and costumes and puts them into a sitespecific context.
The spectrum of artist Anik Lazar (HH) ranges from performances to soundinstallations, sculptures, drawings to a spatial Gesamtkunstwerk.
DELICATE BRIDGES is the second collaboration between Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen and Anik Lazar which has started at the previous festival UNTEN AM HAVN 2013.

Concert Heimatt
Saturday, 5.9.15, 21:00 (Doors open: 20:00)
Afterwards: Hysteria (We aint music/HH)

His lyrics deal with love, loss and the wild tales that happened along a special journey. Magnus Grilstads sings about a very personal search to himself. Ever since he left his search is combined with epic and energetic live-shows benefiting the Danish band’s audience since Heimatt’s debut EP in 2013. After touring all the relevant Danish festivals they are now set to conquer the rest of Europe. The title of their first longplayer released in March 2015 is perfectly suited as motto for the evening: With You I Will Dance All the Way Through the Night. I Will Tie Your Hands and Go Blind. If You Just Let Me.

The number of open air events is rising. In cities there often are clashes of interests because of outdoor activities experienced as noise by some inhabitants. But wether a sound is experienced as noise is not only a matter of the sound level in decibel. In 2014 Gramex, the City of Copenhagen, the Region of Zeeland and different start ups and creative businesses started The House Of Sound. It´s aim is to bring together innovative approaches and results of acustic research to develop new ways of canalizing noise.
