“STRUCTURES”  A site-specific performance

Mille was selected in 2020 as an artist to research her project "Structures" under the 1-month long residency "Performative Landscapes" organised by Metropolis-Copenhagen and in 2023 to join the European project "Hand to Hand".




Exploring new balances and interactions between human, body and “nature” PERFORMATIVE LANDSCAPES was one of three Metropolis Residency programmes in 2020. Seven international artists lived and worked in Copenhagen for a month.

Mille chose to make her “trace” after a month-long residency as a series of night time performative scenes located in the post-industrial landscape of Refshaleøen. As an audience, we were invited to walk through the desolate area encountering four visually strong and atmospheric scenes which built on the latent imagery of this area with its redundant water filled docks, overgrown asphalted wastelands, ominous storage buildings, distant waste disposal plants. This unfinished landscape is powerful in its own right and has many potential narratives, and Mille found the right balance opting for a suggestive approach to every scene which gave us the chance to build our own narratives on the basis of the characters, actions and situations she choreographed in-situ.

 She struck a perfect balance with an overpowering sense of imagery balancing between the fragility of the figures in the work, each caught in a precarious and even desperate situation. But at the same time eluding both sereneness and innocence facing the unknown. A shadowy figure slowly rowing her in the huge dock to disappear under a bridge,  a figure sitting in a disused container looking into a mirror, a figure laying on the asphalt, caught in a car's headlights. Haunting images and highly suspended situations, just long enough to make a strong imprint on the memory and short enough to trigger the imagination. (Trevor Davies, director of Metropolis)

 "Hand to Hand" a European cooperation project which aims to explore the issue of sustainability through learning and experiential spaces of innovation and research for circus artists, especially emerging artists in their artistic practice in public space, and give them new capacities of initiating such a transition. More info:


Through a journey of four exploration times and immersion residencies, Hand to hand offers experimentation spaces through a cross-sectoral collaboration, including cultural and creative industries, researchers in ecology and art, Mille will learn about the making of champagne with the private firm : Joseph Perrier, champagne house in France.

An ongoing process that leads into a site-specific performance where sound, landscape and movement merge together into one. Structures is being developed through the researched material from the residency Performative Landscapes and the exploration times under the project Hand to Hand.


"Structures" will be presented outdoor as part of the Hand to Hand project in; Le Palc, national circus centre in France, ROOM 100 in Croatia, Bússola in Portugal and Helsingør Theatre in Denmark.

More about the Project:

Evoked by improvisation process Mille relates to the site’s environment and creates visual and sound imaginative compositions. In "Structures" each performance is a new show created through improvisation directly on the site or prepared during a 2 days residency.


The performance relates to the structure of the architecture on the site. It question’s the boundaries between the architecture and body. The body and architecture merge sometimes into one landscape or stands out as opposite individuals. The performance breaks with the norms and opens up for new ways of inhabiting a space.


Performer, contortionist and choreographer, Mille Lundt, creates out of a necessity to communicate towards the audience which gives her the potential to find unique movements. She inhabits a specific space using her body language to evoke integrity. The body she presents is the anchor of anecdotes and functions as the silent storyteller set in an urban space, indoor atypical space or in nature.

"Structures" has the possibility of existing with a live soundscape. Mille collaborates with various musicians that work with mixing live field recording and live sound. The music is used to emphasize the visual of the landscape and the performed actions.

Workshops can be offered in relation to the creation of the performance, which includes participants to take part in the process and performing in the end in the show.
