In August 2008 we sailed art ship M/S Half Machine (the Pananga Pearl) to the North Harbor of Copenhagen. In the amazing setting of ‘Docken’ Half Machine artists hosted 3 weeks of international artists lab and events in the spectacular converted warehouse of Docken, on the docks, on the ship, on submarines and in the water.
Half Machine ‘Explosion Nights’ in Nordhavn Copenhagen featured artists, dancers and musicians from all over the world, collaborating to create performances and interactive installations.
