    Watch this teaser for the new performance UDSØGT SMERTE (EXQUISITE PAIN) which is co-produced by Holland House, Husets Teater and Teatret Svalegangen and will open August 24, 2013 at Husets Teater in Copenhagen. EXQUISITE PAIN ”The worse the break-up, the better the art” – Sophie Calle Featuring: Ellen Hillingsø, Solbjørg Højfeldt and Steen Stig Lommer Script: Adaption of Sophie Calle’s "Douleur exquise" by Karen-Marie Bille and Jacob F. Schokking Direction and set design: Jacob F. Schokking Composer: Thomas Strønen Video design: Spild af Tid The acclaimed Danish theatre company Holland House is back at Husets Teater with the first performance of EXQUISITE PAIN. The performance is based on the internationally recognized French artist Sophie Calle’s work "Douleur exquise" which Holland House and Husets Teater are secured the exclusive text rights for. On the day she is supposed to see her beloved again after three months of separation, she receives his last minute cancellation. He has met someone else. He makes the break-up easy, he ends the relationship by phone – hardly three minutes of conversation between a home in Paris and room no. 261 at Hotel Imperial in New Delhi. In the art of Sophie Calle, horrible heart breaks equal great art and her starting point as an artist is often her own love life. In EXQUISITE PAIN the pain of being left behind drives her to retell her own unhappy love story and confront it with other people’s stories of grief. Each retelling gradually becomes less emotional and after about 100 days Sophie Calle has erased her grief and put it behind her. EXQUISITE PAIN will play August 24 - September 28, 2013 at Husets Teater in Copenhagen. Afterwards the performance can be seen at Teatret Svalegangen in Aarhus and on tour all around Denmark, October 9 - December 7, 2013.

Featuring: Troels Lyby, Kristian Halken, Solbjørg Højfeldt, Tilde Maja Fredriksen, Andreas Berg Nielsen Written by: Roland Schimmelpfennig Director/Set Designer: Jacob F. Schokking Music: FM Einheit Video: Spild af Tid Light: Peter Plesner Husets Teater and Holland House proudly present: THE GOLDEN DRAGON An illegal journey into the tooth aches of Europe In a block of flats somewhere in Europe lies the Asian restaurant The Golden Dragon. Here there is not just a little hair in the soup. Instead there is a big inflamed tooth which was pulled out of the mouth of the illegal Chinese kitchen assistant. His sister is locked up in the back of the corner shop and upstairs in the building live to stewardesses, a grandfather and his niece, a divorcing couple, the cricket and the ant and the brutal Hans. Through apparently coincidental situations from these people’s lives, THE GOLDEN DRAGON tells a surprising story about connected destinies. The strong cast of Danish actors is directed by the award winning Director and Set Designer, Jacob F. Schokking. THE GOLDEN DRAGON is written by the award-winning German playwright, Roland Schimmelpfennig. Since its world premiere at Vienna in 2009, THE GOLDEN DRAGON has been staged at theatres all over Germany and now Husets Teater and Holland House cooperates on the opening in Denmark.
