MINU 2022 has only one kind of ticket available: a festival ticket that gives access to all concerts on the festival.  

It’s important for us to present events that are accessible to everyone regardless of financial means. The festival ticket is priced at 100 kr [with an option to also pay 200 kr for the ticket if you have the financial means and want to support our activities]. We want to encourge audiences to visit multiple events, therefore access to all concerts on the festival is included when you purchase a ticket.

Be aware that this concert is at a small venue that might fill up quickly.

‘Fragments’ is a piece which examines disparate elements such as death, alienation, fantasy and dreams through a fragmented narrative landscape of DIY film, monologue, pseudo-scientific presentations and musical performance. The question that is at the core of the piece is “how can we process the world around us and our own experiences when they are divided into the real, the virtual, the external and the internal?”.

This question is asked over and over in ‘Fragments’ as the characters and ideas of this world navigate their way through dream like states and events and as more layers of information are hurled at the viewer.
