Photo Reportage of DOVENSKAB/SLOTH/怠惰

Ritual Ⅰ

Torturing the dead (sick)


“Eriko Makimura’s performance last night was an absolute disaster. A disgrace for the world of classical music. She had no respect for her audience in the way she mistreated Beethoven’s masterpiece. She is a self-proclaimed professional pianist whose talent is fading. Makimura does not belong in the music industry and is not worth your time.”

– Rasmus Rasmussen –



– ラスムス・ラスムセン –

Ritual Ⅱ 
The evidence & the death sentence

Ritual Ⅲ

Delusional temporarily mental peacefulness by anti-anxiety chemicals 

Ritual Ⅳ
Intermezzo (Hypnotized in your own pink bubble)

Ritual Ⅴ
Farewell to all addiction which made her a delusional dopy saint. Face to nowness

Enough is enough. The pianist was here and she was overthrown by an overdose of sloth. The pianist will be reincarnated next year from the womb of another deadly sin.

A sincere thanks to the William Demant / Oticon Foundation for sponsoring this years concert performance: DOVENSKAB/SLOTH/怠惰.

Concert Performance DOVENSKAB/SLOTH/怠惰

(English Text by Sofia Ivarsson 🙏)

The third week of November is almost here. Isn’t that the best time of the year to indulge in endless laziness? At least- that must be a perfect reason to drag your most lazy selves out to see Eriko Makimura & Co perform, perceive and pursue the deadly sin we named SLOTH.

The fundamental question is whether laziness still serves a purpose as a deadly sin, or if it rather has become a survival mechanism, that we all desperately need in order to go on living.

The pianist is a sad case, since giving in to laziness would mean the end of her career. So we wonder, could we create a new world order, where SLOTH no longer equals death, where even the world famous pianist from Japan could enjoy a few moments of laziness without guilt?

Come and see by yourselves!

For 4. år i træk vender den japanske pianist og performer Eriko Makimura tilbage til KoncertKirken på Nørrebro, for endnu en gang at forvandle en af de syv dødssynder om til en eksplosion af en koncertperformance. 

Eriko Makimura fabulerer over dødssynden DOVENSKAB’s yderste og inderste aspekter, hvor og hvorfor den eksisterer og over hvorvidt dovenskaben som dødssynd overhovedet har sin eksistensberettigelse i det senmoderne samfund. Er dovenskaben resultat af, eller roden til det evigt scrollende smartphone-livet, vi som kritiske individer er en del af?

Japanese pianist & performer Eriko Makimura returns to KoncertKirken at Nørrebro for the 4th year in a row, to yet again transform one of the seven deadly sins into an explosive concert performance.

Eriko Makimura speculates upon the deadly sin SLOTH, questioning its inner and outer aspects, where and why it exists, and whether it still can be considered a deadly sin in the late modern society of today. Is sloth the effect or the cause of the constantly scrolling smartphone-biased existence that we as critical individuals are leading?

Koncertperformance “VREDE”



【Koncertperformance “VREDE (Wrath)”】

-Following on the theme of Seven Deadly Sins-

Featuring: Other Story

November is a sinful month. This year “VREDE (Wrath)” will be presented explosively with music and film at KoncertKirken.

We are extremely honored to screen Other Story’s film “Phyllis” (The description about the film is found below).

“Variations on the theme of Dies Irae (the day of Wrath)” composed by Eriko Makimura will be premiered. She will collect the audience’s “wrath” and insert the explosive emotions into the piano.

Some authorities say that wrath is social criticism. However, do we really need to define intellectually what wrath means? We will keep tranquility about it until we explode on the stage.

More info coming up soon on our Facebook Page. Stay tuned!

This Other Story short-film, with Phyllis Young of the Lakota tribe from Standing Rock, is a part of the second series of Other Story films, Tribe of all Colors – intimate film-portraits of people who are investing themselves in the fight for this planet.
In these short documentaries, we get close to people who fight to protect the water flowing in the Missouri River, from oil-leaks in the Dakota Access Pipeline construction.


Other Story met Phyllis Young by a side-stream to the Missouri River, and sat down with her by the water, to talk about ancestors, her experience of the uprising against the Dakota Access Pipeline, and about her message to the young people of today going into the future. Phyllis’ Lakota name is ‘Woman who Stands by the Water’.
