White Hole Theater presents in collaboration with Viborg Municipality and Late Love Productions the multiverse performance 3 KINGS a ground-breaking virtual reality theatre show where the audience sees the actors act physically and virtually. The performance will premiere in 2024. Every year from June 2021 we will share a sneek peak with the public.

The year is 1146. Throughout Europe, royalty and nobles gather for crusades to reconquer the Holy Land. In Denmark, the last Vikings have died, England and Norway have been lost, the influence of the new religion Christianity is growing rapidly, and suddenly King Erik Lam becomes seriously ill and has to abdicate. Denmark suffers from the constant looting of the Wends on Danish coasts and is already on the brink of civil war after 15 years of brothers and cousins murdering each other within the royal family. All free men are summoned in Viborg to elect the new king, but for the first time in Danish history, no agreement is reached. The smoldering conflict erupts, and 11 years of fierce battle between Svend 3rd Grathe and Knud 5th begins. Meanwhile, the young popular prince Valdemar grows up to become a third candidate for the throne…
