In Backseated, the audience is invited for a car ride through the center of Copenhagen. In the performance the car is at first an imaginary setting and later a physical location. The participant meets up with a performer and is handed a phone. Through a phone call the participant receives instructions referring to both real and fictitious elements; To walk down a street while following a score of movements. At one point the participant is told to jump into a car. A roll of pink chewing gum lying in the backseat, connects the interactive movements of the audience to a story recited by the driver of the car, so that the choreography is woven together with this monologue.
