Melanie Jame Wolf performed ” This Time You’re Winning” at Hitparaden 1

This Time You’re Winning invites you to take the opportunity to say the words you always wanted to say, but didn’t. You may have been carrying these words from an old argument, or a recent embarrassment. Perhaps they are for a lover, new or remembered. Or perhaps they are for a nemesis or a friend. Perhaps it happened yesterday. Or perhaps these words have been traveling restlessly beside you for many years or sleepless nights.

This Time You’re Winning offers you the chance to finally say those words and have them heard. Within your This Time You’re Winning consultation you have the opportunity to recall these words, to revise them, to revisit their space or somewhere similar and record them. From there your once silent words will find their way into history after all as this video archive slowly makes its way around the world.

This Time You’re Winning was first developed with the kind support of Kiasma Contemporary Art Museum, Helsinki. The work will travel to Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival, NYC in July & Staycation Museum, Berlin in September.

Melanie Jame Wolf is the creative director of Savage Amusement and a member of Triage Live Art Collective. She makes work which is mostly performance based, often site-specific, usually involves participation and is increasingly interested in video as a performance object. She is currently investigating themes of love, distance, language, memory and the animal in her work.

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.
