A fugitive crosses his tracks

A fugitive crosses his tracks’ is an art performance inspired by the Norwegian/Danish author Axel Sandemose’s novel called ‘A fugitive crosses his tracks’. The novel describes a village life where social and moral standards are dictated by the Jantelaw. The law among other states that, you’re not to think that you are anything special, as good or better as we are.

This performance addresses about the exercising of power, migration, crossing boundaries or tracks to fit in and integrate.

The wheel of hay is a symbol of the wheel of life. Where does it takes us? And do we dare to break out of the boundaries where we feel safe and blend in with the crowd? The act of rolling the hay in a small town in Jutland is symbolic to his life journey, and attempts to fit into new surrounding.
