Outrageous Copenhagen

The Dunst collective is one of the Scandinavian city's hidden gems

Dunst
There are many pretty things to see in Copenhagen, but the performance artists’ collective Dunst isn’t one of them.
 
“We want to show that there are other things than the mainstream gay — that it’s not all about looking good,” says Dennis Agerblad, a member of Dunst.
 
Dunst had its start more than a decade ago. The group quickly made a name for itself with its outrageous shows and refusal to make its act more mainstream.
 
At one point the group had a TV show in Denmark, but it was cancelled because the broadcaster felt Dunst’s humour was too coarse.
