BEVAR MIG VEL (Keep me well)
- An audiovisual walk at Bellahøj
With headphones on their ears the audience is invited on a unique three dimensional soundjourney through the lonesome echoes of the stairwells, down and around the lonesome dark amphiscene through the hot pot of yellow peas and back to the 50's Bellahøj area in Copenhagen.
Bevar Mig Vel takes place and tells the story of Bellahøj. The audience is guided by an audio guide that, throughout the journey tells the story of the area, the buildings and the project that was the Bellahøj Houses - Denmark's first skyscrapers. During the journey, the guides voice will be replaced by the voice of Selma. Selma has been a resident of Bellahøj since it's inauguration in the 50's. As a last testimony, before her forced departure from Bellahøj, Selma tells and relives the the dancing, the dresses, the
music and the parties that has defined her life, and the memories are brought to life both visually and through sound.
Selma is a fictional character, who's life's story was created from interviews with some of the first residents of the Bellahøj houses. Bevar Mig Vel is a touching and sensual theatrical audio walk in between the sky reaching, concrete grey Bellahøj houses and their untold stories.
