"In the beginning there was only the empty space, just like a blank canvas, who can explain that? The silence and suddenly the music..."
This is how the performance opens and reflects on the meaning of art and artistic life. The Danish musician Henrik Andersens in between autobiography and allegorical narration brings the love relationship to the stage most tortuous and irresistible: the relationship with one's vocation. Henrik, omniscient narrator and refined storyteller, evokes the appearance of one's own visions. Until talking with the last of the transfigured characters to ask her "What is art?"

REACTIONS FROM THE PREMIERE AUDIENCE
"It can be strongly recommended. I saw them this evening.
Its brave, touching, funny, thought provoking and important. Extra ordinary high level"
Boe Larsen Millhouse studio
"THEATER: We got the story of a musician's transformation from beginner to master, and along the way the audience also got an inspiring introduction to the diversity of music and how we can always discover new layers within it. It was both dance and music at a high technical level. The performance is directed by Solveig Weinkouff and can soon be experienced on tour" - #amusicaljourney Søren Kristoffer Kløft
"Haven't experienced anything like this since Peter Bastian"
