»A christian evening« is an attempt at a physical and philosophical reflection on body, critique and christianity.
The work started of with questions about how christian faith is constructed, practiced and interpreted. Christian vocabulary played an important role and was used as a main reference for the choreographic work. The meaning was to through different theories and arguments find a physical experience about Christian faith, tradition and bodily existence.
