Live Art Denmark

What is live art?

“Live Art is more a way of thinking and doing than a rigid artistic discipline. Much of its cultural value lies in its experiential and exploratory nature – in its approaches to, and negotiation of, ideas, experiences, and things”. (Alex Eisenberg, LADA, London)

Live Art Denmark was founded in 2004 in Copenhagen to promote the discussion, documentation and development of live art forms in Denmark. We focus on researchbased, interdisciplinary and performative practices. Our profile is context-specific and participatory.

Live Art Denmark specializes in interdisciplinary audience engagement in collaborations with theatres, museums, music venues and festivals in Denmark and intenationally. We are fully funded by the Danish Art Council. Since 2004, we have developed several new formats and modes of interaction with intergenerational audiences, from live performance and festivals to educational concepts and documentation for the VR format with a 360 degree camera.

Since 2021, we also have a venue, Friisland; a space for interdisciplinary and performative investigations of ideas. See
