|COPENHAGEN - STRUCK BY THE CITY was a continuation of the performance ZOOM created by E.K.K.O in 2004.
Five dancers moved through streets, people, dreams and reality – together with the audience. COPENHAGEN - STRUCK BY THE CITY embraced the anatomy of city, the feel and the pulse. Copenhagen was transformed and mirrored in a danced installation.
The performance premiered in 2007 in an old slaughter house called Building 55, in the meat packing district in Copenhagen.
