Terra Nova

Terra Nova is a group of full- and part-time performance-artists, who have been working together since 1999. The current artistic leader is Jens Bäckvall. Terra Nova works mostly with interaction with and manipulation of the audience in intimate one-to-one scenarios, either in public space or within specially designed installations. A lot of the work is concerned with different aspects of communication, existentialism and rituals as wellcollaborations with ngo’s to highlight socio-political problems and agendas.

For Samtalekøkkenet february 2013, Jens Bäckvall and Christian Adelhorst Rossil presented their Open Source project in a lecture called “Like/not like”:


Om liveart_dk

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.
