A reading of the play Copenhagen

London Toast Theatre, the English Theatre of Copenhagen, presents a staged reading of Michael Frayn's award-winning play "Copenhagen" about the mysterious war-time meeting in 1941 between the two Nobel Prize winning scientists, the Danish physicist Niels Bohr and the German physicist, Werner Heisenberg .

They collaborated on crucial work leading to the creation of the atomic bomb used to end the war in 1945. The playwright re-imagines this extraordinary meeting and tests our feelings on the moral responsibilities of scientists .

Vivienne McKee has adapted and directed this edited version of the play -  starring Tony Wedgwood as Bohr, David Bateson as Heisenberg and Vivienne McKee as Margrethe Bohr. 

There is no additional cost for this social event.

On 28th May 2011 “Your rainbow panorama” was opened. This permanent work of art, created by Olafur Eliasson, is a circular walkway 150 metres in circumference and three metres wide, with glass walls in all the colours of the spectrum. The spectacular work of art has a diameter of 52 metres and is mounted on slender columns 3.5 metres above the roof of the museum. Visitors to the museum have free access to this work of art, via stairs or a lift.

A bus will pick you up at the university and a guide will accompany you on this tour. The tour ends at ARoS.

City Sightseeing Tour: 13.30 – 16.00

This tour will show your the major sights of Aarhus. A bus will pick you up at the university and a guided tour will start at the Cathedral. The Cathedral was founded at the beginning of the 12th century and has a very beautiful catholic alter and Denmark’s biggest collection of frescos. A very short walk takes you to the Viking museum, which is located beneath the Nordea bank building. The bank is built on the site of an archaeological excavation that reveals traces of the Vikings, who founded the city more than 1,000 years ago. From the Viking Museum you walk to the charming cobblestone street Møllestien, which has small timbered houses with hollyhocks.

The guide will also tell you about the city’s history in general and the more recent developments in the city which have re-defined many areas, particulary the uncovering of the river which gives the city a totally different character. The city walk ends at the Main Square.

Price per person: 225 DKK / 30 EUR
