Overview of this campaign

In december 2020 The Royal Danish Theatres 'Old Stage' in Copenhagen was the primary setting of an extremely popular christmas tv-series on our main channel DR1.

This was an opportunity for us to spark an interest for an institution often percieved as elitist to a broader and younger audience.

The Royal Danish Theatre is often described as a 'fairitale factory'. But who works in the factory? Who makes it run? And most of all: what is it like to be the theatres prima ballerina in the center of it all?

In this POV-experience you step into the shoes of one of the best prima ballerinas in the world on the day of a premiere and experience how three centuries of history and tradition of The Royal Danish Theatre affects the only 27 year old dancer.

Everything depends on you. If you fail tonight - everyone fails.
