Don Gnu

DON GNU – Physical Theatre is an artistic collaboration that focuses on dance and physical theatre, both on stage and screen. We use a direct, expressive and very physical language and often have a great impact on young audiences.

The company’s name – and the basis for collaboration and artistic development – is built around the paradox embedded in the name DON GNU. Don as an individual, and Gnu as a herd animal. The constellation of both the individual and the collective creates the dynamism, experimentation and development-basis for the ideas that are the hallmark of DON GNU’s productions.

The artistic duo at the helm of DON GNU consists of Jannik Elkær & Kristoffer Louis Andrup Pedersen.
