The Skeleton-Man Show

Join Skeleton-Man on a colorfull journey of the Ultimate Concerns of life; The Terror of Death, Freedom, Isolation and Meaninglessness

According to the existential school these fundamental conditions of life govern our life in profound ways. Yet, while we  recognise these features of life and must accept their inevitability, most of our lifes we spend looking away. Truly accepting the experience that we are not living up to our potential is simply to hellish.

Still, even if the thought of our mortality and our personal responsibility kan provoke a deep terror in us, the idea of death also opens up for an appreciation of the urgency of life. In the very end, therefore, it can be the very same idea that saves us and enables us to in action honour our existence.

With Skeleton-Man as your host we will investigate together how existential considerations can give us the personal power to seize life and how the themes can be understood in relation to our work place and the functionings of organizations.

Contact The Skeleton-Man


Skeleton-Man came to life in 2005 when the first version of the skeleton suit premiered at the Sonica Festival in Italy. Since then Skeleton-Man has entertained kids, adults and elders in USA, Brazil, Cambodia and all over Europe and Denmark. Likewise, the suit has gone been through multiple iterations and today incorporates lights, lasers and Arduino Programming.

No matter the iteration, however, at the heart of Skeleton-Man is good vibes and dancing in all its forms on and off the dance floors.

I think the global appeal of Skeleton-Man is that we can all identify with him. Yes, a skeleton reminds us of death which can cause a deep terror in us, but the recognition of death can also release life changing powers and motivate us to appreciate life in action. To me that is all Skeleton-Man is about. With dance, music, joy, good vibes and as many along as possible

Based on the idea that life is best considered a dance where the movement is more important than the destination the Skeleton-Man project today includes dj and dance entertainment alongside shows on existential themes. And if you need to light up your life in a very hands-on manner Skeleton-Man can also be booked for an El Wire Workshop where you will learn to make your own lightning creations.

Behind Skeleton-Man is storyteller, DJ and Master of Law, Michael Wolffhechel, that has been developing Skeleton-Man since 2004.
