Live Art Denmark was founded in 2004 in Copenhagen to promote the discussion, documentation and development of live art in Denmark. We have organized 15 large international festivals of Live Art for kids and adults since 2004, and 50 discussion events, books, video series, symposia and more in the field of live art, performance art, art criticism and documentation.

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.

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. We create and curate concepts which include and invite an audience of all ages to participate.
