Bombina Bombast “#thelmatoo”
Get kidnapped by Thelma and Louise
Come along in an escape from patriarchy when Thelma and Louise drives off in a limousine with you in the back seat. In this rolling interactive, intimate performance mixed with VR technology we move through a geographical and gender political borderland. An epic road trip where you will also be treated to food and drink – but don’t forget your passport!
#thelmatoo is a satirical virtual reality car show that moves across national borders. Using site specific scenes and virtual reality it places the audience in the middle of a dystopian future, in part inspired by Ridley Scott’s iconic Hollywood film.
In this co-production between Bombina Bombast and danish Sydhavn Teater the audience gets to follow along when Thelma and Louise escapes the patriarchal Denmark over the Öresund bridge to the feminist Sweden.
