Copenhagen – Summer Dance Evenings at Police Headquarters
An evening of dance at Copenhagen’s Police headquarters? Not as bizarre as it sounds. Tim Rushton, a British choreographer who set roots in Denmark and has since dominated the dance scene with his Dansk Dans Teater. Among his goals was to make dance less elitist and offer a taste of it to the Danish masses. His dream has come true and every year DDT stages Summer Dance in open air locations. As far as police stations go, this one is certainly not run of the mill; it boasts an unusual inner courtyard that is worth a visit with or without dance (see photo above).
When: Aug 7 – 13, 9pm
Where: Police Headquarters Otto Mønsteds Gade 4  1571 København V
Free entry if standing room only, for seats at DKK 45 order at BilletNet
