139. The Copenhagen Workers Museum


50’s dance in the shadow of the Cold War
Dust off your dancing shoes and tighten your helmet. Dance before the war comes! Let yourself be whisked back to the 1950’s with swinging rock’n’roll, perky torpedo bras and slick ducktails, and forget all about the decade’s nuclear threat and unemployment. If the air raid sounds, you’ll have to seek shelter in the attic – that will remind you of the biggest everyday fear of the decade: ”If the war comes”.

Time: 6:00 PM - 12:00 AM
