The ensemble

trash.dk combines music with theater in new ways in striking performances. The shows and events are highly entertaining.

Ordinary things like trashcans, bicycles and plastic tubes are the only instruments we use to create spectacular and powerful shows.

trash.dk has played more than 500 concerts, shows and events in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Estonia. The ensemble has performed for organizations and tv-stations like TV2 Denmark, UEFA, the Nordic Council of Ministers and Copenhagen Jazzfestival.

All members of trash.dk have MAs from top classical academies of music as well as comprehensive experience from professional theatres, ensembles and symphony orchestras.

Concerts and performances

Our concerts appeal to a wide-ranging audience. Our experience in presenting music to children is comprehensive. We have played more than 300 concerts in Denmark and abroad. All of our presentations and communication are nonverbal and therefore perfectly suited for audiences in any country.

Amongst others we have produced and performed concerts for

  • Copenhagen Jazzfestival
  • Rikskonsertene in Norway
  • Eesti Kontsert in Estonia
  • Konserttikeskus in Finland

Symphonic productions

The ensemble has created a brand new type of concert for the symphony orchestra in two different classical productions: “A Mission Impossible…” and “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”. The concerts are powerful and entertaining explorations of classical music and the symphony orchestra. Performance and comedy is used to transform the concert into a great symphonic show in which trash.dk are both soloists and guides of classical music. There is no use of speech in the concert. All communication happens through music and performance. The concerts are performed with a strong connection to the audience and have been very popular.

trash.dk has produced for and been soloist with:

  • Malmö Symphony Orchestra
  • Aalborg Symphony Orchestra
  • Odense Symphony Orchestra
  • Aarhus Symphony Orchestra
  • South Jutland Symphony Orchestra
