Pernille Garde Stage Art

Selected as one of the highlights on CPH STAGE 2021


LEA’S ROOM is a dark, poetic and visually strong dance performance based on a true story. The performance uncovers the vulnerable situation a child is left alone in after sexual abuse. The performance highlights the brutal change of reality, loss of meaning and identity; threatened into silence, traumatized; in shame, guilt and fear.

LEA’S ROOM shifts in time and space between being a child and an adult, combining real events with dreamlike images. LEA’S ROOM uses subtle humor to shed light upon a complex topic and is mediated through dance, words, video and new music.
