“… original and liberating politically. (…) I would strongly urge you to go and let yourself be beaten up by this piece and then decide for yourself what you think.

“…this Tuesday night experience proved to me that theatre is able to deal with the most problematic discussions of zeitgeist and power..”

“The madness of the evening has given me a whole new view of the theatre’s potential. ROCKY! Is 105 minutes of theatre that I will NEVER forget. ”

“This is art that will follow you on your way out of the theatre.”

“Incredibly high level of performance and presence.  (….) Needs to be experienced – no more disclosure here. Raw, revealing and thought provoking. ”

“Bravo! (…) Prepare for an evening that stays with your soul long after! “

“This is the trump that Tue Biering often throws in the theatre. When he’s good, he’s phenomenally fantastic. I give ROCKY! My most insisting recommendation, if you dare look yourself in the eye.”
Kop Kultur

“‘Rocky!’ shows us that the theatre can do a lot more than entertain – it can also challenge us on all levels. ”
Ungt Teaterblod

“Husets Teater hereby tells the most important political history of the times.”

“Politically essential theater”

We love them. The losers who rise, and against all odds, prevail over their own inferiority, social legacy and their completely unreasonable loss of life. But what if it’s us, our values ​​and existence that must be defeated? What if it’s us who ends up as the losers?
