This Project examines how Brorsons Kirke (Brorsons Church) performs a communal service, and through this, how it acts and appears as a church in Copenhagen. This is examined through a case study of the Event ‘Bøn & Brunch’ (Prayer & Brunch) +16.10.16. Brorsons Kirke is situated in a multicultural area of Nørrebro in Copenhagen and is branded as a “Youth and Childrens Church”. The church can, in comparison to regular Danish protestant churches, be regarded as being more experimental, hosting alternative Christian services and cultural events in general. ‘Bøn & Brunch’ is an event combining Christian communal service with a subsequent communal eating in the church. The Case study was made, based on a collection of data gathered during attendance at ‘Bøn & Brunch’, using methods of participant observation. In working with an analysis of the Observations, the Project makes use of various theories; such as performance theories and anthropological theories. To examine the event on a performance level, the project will first and foremost make use of the performance theories of Michael Eigtved, which are used as a primary tool for analysis, supplemented with the theories of Richard Schechner. As for the anthropological perspective, the project makes use primarily of the theories of Èmile Durkheim. This is brought into use firstly as a basic introduction to relevant concepts of religious and cultural aspects of the project. Furthermore, it facilitates an extension of the analysis, bringing the performative examinations into broader perspectives of anthropological aspects.
