It all starts with vague memories of German game shows on a Danish television. We are sitting on plastic folding chairs in a gymnasium, which has seen more than we ever can imagine. If you aren’t allowed to say anything, shouldn’t we all be dancing more? That wasn’t a question. My father told me about sailing to South Korea. The feeling of being seen and the feeling of being attacked are two sides of the same coin. And if a spade can ever be more than a spade, and if we can ever be more than friends.
