Mathias Kryger

Mathias Kryger performed with Sophie Dupont at Samtalekøkkenet. They create experiments that began as actions only to be performed in the settings of parties, the artists create spectacles involving movement and costumes. In a completely collective work process the artists create costumes of found and cheaply bought materials and create silent physical situations reminiscent of dance performances from early Avantgarde and Dada as well as from contemporary dance and theatre.

Mathias Kryger (b. 1977) has an MA in Visual Culture. He writes art criticism for Kunstkritikk and the daily paper Politiken, and is a performanceartist, popsinger and curator.

For Samtalekøkkenet, May 2011, Mathias Kryger and Sophie Dupont created a disco-performance:

Om liveart_dk was founded in 2004 in Copenhagen to promote the discussion, documentation and development of live art in Denmark. The organisation is equally inspired by the imaginative and entertaining English Live Art tradition as by the theoretical and political German theatre tradition. We have organised 10 large international festivals of Live Art for kids and adults since 2004, and over 40 discussion events, books, video series, symposia and more in the field of live art, performance art, art criticism and documentation. We collaborate with theatres, music venues, art museums and festivals in Denmark and internationally.
