Imperial Troopers

A thriller about our fear of being invaded


January 27th – February 12th 2022 - Betty Nansen Teatret (DK)

Once they were grillbar owners. Those were the pioneers. It is a long time ago, and many more have arrived since. Back then we had no idea they were slowly invading our minds and our culture. Now they are everywhere, closing in. We have had dreams about them, yet only few of us have ever met or seen them.

We have located evil in the world and we call it China. It now stands between them and us. The question is: What do they want from us? At what point will they stop? Are we quietly being replaced facing total submission?

FIX&FOXY invites the pioneer troops of the enemy onto the stage, into our theater. But is this actually theatre or just another Chinese manipulative attempt to get into our heads?

Imperial Troopers is a thriller about our fear of being invaded inspired by the cult splatter movie “Invasion of The Body Snatchers”. Expect Kung Fu, shadow puppetry, dragon dancers, and all those from the first wave who have been here forever – joined by the voices whispering and echoing in your mind.
