Abstract [en]

After visiting the installation "Din blinde passager" (Your Blind Passenger) by the Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson the theatre scholar Kim Skjoldager-Nielsen has put together some thoughts about the extent to which staged event can give rise to religious and spiritual experiences through their material nature. The central question here is how theatre can support a return to transcendent aspects in everyday social life when most people in society have in pricinple lost these skills.
