The vacation, you can't wait to come home from...! 

Do you also dream of paradise? Of packing your sandals, bandana and sun cream and heading off towards distant shorelines and new worlds? Of coming home renewed and empowered, with a pocketful of life-affirming and unforgettable memories?


So come along, citizen of the world, back-packer, charter-tourist, on the journey of your life to the land of holiday wishes, dreams… and nightmarish scenarios! Because something is wrong, and three loveable individuals are forced to realize that in reality it’s not a question of the destination but of the road that leads to it… for fate has it that their unique dream voyage turns into a chaotic battle ground over their claim to beautiful, uninhabited landscapes, swimming pools and roasted suckling pigs or croissants and cortados at a sidewalk café in Nice.


An action-packed, physical comedy about life as a tourist and about how encountering others can bring both the best and the worst out in us. Welcome to DON GNU’S fantastic island of dance.


TOURIST is the second performance of a trilogy about the extraordinary experiences of ordinary life.



"There is hardly any other dance theater in Denmark that works as devilishly imaginative and bursting with energy as DON GNU"
