Why Not Theatre Company presents:

World premiere: 11th September 2015 – a secret place somewhere in Carlsberg city

Why Not Theatre Company is one of Denmark’s leading English-speaking theatre companies, renowned for productions such as “Vita & Virginia” at CaféTeatret in 2011, for “Wit” (2014) and “A Tender Thing” (2015) at Bådteatret. “Wit” was nominated by CPHCulture as one of the best productions in Season 2014/15 and Why Not’s Artistic Director and actress Sue Hansen-Styles was awarded Best Actress in Danish theatre in the same season.

Now, the little theatre company returns with a new, exciting “devised” production, SECRETS, which has its world premiere on September 11th in a secret place somewhere in Carlsberg city, Copenhagen V.
3 actors. 3 generations. 1 musician. Many secrets.

Why do we all have secrets? What is/are your neighbour, your friends, your boyfriend or girlfriend, or your parents keeping from you? What is your biggest, deepest, most embarrassing or most grotesque secret? Have you ever told anyone else about it? Why? Why not? Can you keep a secret? How does it feel when someone tells you their secret, or when you tell a secret – either your own, or somebody else’s?

Join us on a musical and poetical journey; a journey through all our secrets – from the most embarrassing to the most grotesque.

For the first time ever, Why Not Theatre Company explores a new, experimental theatre form, where Director, Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen, weaves together short stories written by Tanja Mastilo, a Copenhagen-based Serbian writer, with the team’s own secrets and spices it all up with music and poetry. The decision to play SECRETS outside the traditional theatre, where everything tends to be safe and recognizable, is a conscious one: we meet at Café Elefanten at Carlsberg no later than 15 minutes before the performance starts and are then guided – on foot – to a secret place.

SECRETS is directed by young American director, Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen. On stage are Sue Hansen-Styles (58), Nathan Meister (38), Alexandra Jespersen (18) and musician Rasmus Rhode (his age is a secret).

The production plays from 11th – 26th September 2015, in English.

Pilates with Kirsten Larsen

“In order to achieve happiness, it is imperative to gain mastery of your body. If at the age of 30 you are stiff and out of shape, you are old. If at 60 you are supple and strong then you are young.” Joseph Pilates

TRX Classes trx

What is TRX?

It was developed by the Navy SEALS to ensure that wherever they were posted, they had an effective exercise programme.

Suspension Training® is a method of leveraged body weight exercises where you can set up the portable TRX Suspension Trainer anywhere and work out hundreds of different moves

The diversity of this training system and programming is unique in its development but simple to perform, though you will be challenged as every movement requires balance and core strength. If you do not have either, the TRX will develop it and take care of all the neglected muscle groups your regular program misses. This can be done as a supplemental plan for athletes or it can be a stand alone program for people at every level of fitness.

The workout helps you increase strength, flexibility, balance and choose your own intensity level.
