Amagertorv is converted into a large mosaic of colourful blankets and rugs forming a camp inviting by-passers to sleep and relax throughout the night. J&K act as night watches equipped with flashlights and headlamps ‐ the sole light sources of the scenery. Taking care of the camp they fold and arrange the blankets and tuck in the sleepers. Two storytellers recites an ongoing verse play consisting of quotes of The Tibetan Book of The Dead and the chapter Purgatory from Dante’s Divine Comedy, composed by English writer Neal Brown.
Story tellers: Jon Bonnici and Nick Brooks
