Richard Foreman

In 1999, Gritt Uldall-Jessen and Henrik Vestergaard organized a performance of New York City independent theatre legend Richard Foreman’s play “Hotel Fuck” in Copenhagen. The presentation was accompanied by a seminar about the work of the seminal director. In 2007 they established the Open Source Theater and brought Richard Foreman and Sophie Haviland from The Bridge Project back to Denmark to lead a long, intense workshop at Odsherred Theater.

As Live Art Denmark did not yet exist at the time, these were not strictly speaking production by Live Art Denmark, but the spirit was the same!
