BY NINA TOFTE HANSEN

"Arternes Aarhus" (ENG: "The species of Aarhus") is about giving a voice to all the species in the city of Aarhus, and not just the humans. Nina Tofte Hansen tells the quirky story of the species-ambassadors of Aarhus, and how other life forms are given consideration through these people. The audience is introduced to both the current Mole- and Dandelion-ambassador, and a tree - which is of course an Aarhusian as much as anybody else in the city.
