Arnold's Vision - VR performance
Viborg 1146. Dusk. A fireplace and a stone. Many people have arrived in Viborg but the city is calm. The construction site of the future Viborg cathedral is silent. Men have already stop working for the day. We can hear the sound of ravens, doves and church mess. Arnold is sitting on the stone evoking the spirits of the night – Lygtemanden – and gets the audience attention. During the night he will introduce the audience to the great events of the day to come.

CONEPT: In June 2021, we'll invite the audience to experience Viborg and Stænderpladsen anno 1146. A very different town and a deeply different time, a time of kings and bishops, Christianity and Paganism. With this performance, we aim at giving the audience a glimpse of the truly unique theatrical experience, which awaits them in 2024. Bounded by sunset and sunrise, Arnold’s Vision is a dive into a wacky night, imbued with the dangerous time of spirits and true visions.
