The Market (is no place)
A young unemployed Greek turns up on the stage of the Royal Danish Theatre. The Greek is angry, he feels left out, he hasn’t had a chance, and now he damn well wants in on the Market. And in he gets his way. Also on the stage is someone with the same name as the production’s director, Elisa Kragerup. Since Europe’s economic collapse picked up speed in 2008, she has wanted to lure into the light the Market with its market forces and market logic. Now she takes the young Greek hostage and sends him on a journey through the Market. His guide is that old, cynical critic, Karl Marx. Step by step, the Greek is transformed from a passive spectator into a revolutionary activist who undertakes to unite humanity in a showdown with: the Market.
