Lampedusa Cruises

Get on board on the World’s most northern refugee boat, alongside its crew of refugees

Join the Lampedusa Cruises Association on a lovely trip in the waters of Copenhagen with food, music and swimming.

Alhadj Djumaa is a fishingboat from Egypt. It is 11 meters long and 3.80 meters wide. It left Egypt in 2013 heading towards the Italian island Lampedusa. When the boat was stopped by the Italian coastguard, they registered 282 passengers, mainly from Ethiopia and Eritrea.

It is a well functioning little motorboat and a symbol of global diversities. Join us on a sailing trip for all of those who want a little taste of the good life.

The association Lampedusa Cruises is founded by fix+foxy. The show is produced in collaboration with Trampolinhuset and Eventministeriet. The project is supported by The Danish Arts Council.

Lampedusa Cruises was performed 19 August – 2 September 2016 at the Harbour promenade at Knippelsbro in Copenhagen.
