Blizzard Concept

Blizzard Concept Works for Live Art Danmark 2022 “Neptunia” at Live Art for Børn, Aarhus Neptunia Kids were amazed to meet Neptunia, a circus plant that can actually dance. The French new circus and neo-magic group Blizzard Concept brought this completely unusual potted plant to Aarhus for us. She loooks like just another Schefflera Arboricola, but when on stage, she gently, but clearly visible to the naked eyes, sways to her very own rhythms. Even for the adventurous artists of Blizzard concept, it was a completely new and challenging experience to train a house plant. About Blizzard Concept In 2012, after graduating from Lido circus arts school, clown and juggler […]

Francis Patrick Brody

Francis Patrick Brody Works for Live Art Danmark2021 Artist in residency, “The Ignorant Gamesmaster”, live game and performances at Friisland. The Ignorant Gamesmaster “But now the gamesmaster opens his mouth to explain the game. He makes a series of reasonings in order to explain the series of reasonings that constitute the game. But why should the game need such help?” During his residency with Live Art Danmark, which we facilitated in collaboration with Copenhagen Contemporary, performance artist Francis Patrick Brody developed and presented a series of gamea, and audiences were invited to play. Due to the ignorance of the gamesmaster, Francis himself, who refused to provide a set of rules […]


Kosmologym Work with Live Art Danmark 2019 “Probaball” at Live Art for Børn Probaball Kosmologym developed a series of performative games that allow participants to encounter political and ethical issues in original, practical and even fun ways. Probaball explores and practices the ways insurances function to minimise risks. Alluding to the increasing amount of extreme freak weather incidents caused by climate change they say that insurance “was born in flames but may be extinguished by floods”. Probaball examines the institution of insurance through a collective risk protection game. Paricipants build cities from wooden building blocks, insure them and then anxiously wait (not for very long) for disasters to strike. About […]

Kirsten Justesen

Kirsten Justesen Work with Live Art Danmark 2019/20 “Ice Hands”, performance score for “Playing Up” Ice Hands Some artists create marble and stone sculptures that last for thousands of years. Kirsten Justesen began early on to work with her own body as a form, and later with ice as a material. Her sculptures do not last forever, because the ice and the body, which are both shaped by nature’s processes, change and disappear with time. In our performance game Playing Up, we included two instructions that were inspired by Kirsten’s various works of body art that used ice as their central ingredient. Participants were asked to hold an ice cube […]

Johannes Zits

Johannes Zits Works With Live Art Danmark 2019 “Dialoguing With Trees”, Live Art for Børn 2019 Performance Recipe for “Performance Opskrivter” Dialoguing With Trees For this performance Johannes put himself into an empathic state with some trees and attempted to convey to them the divergent impressions of nature within an art context. He achieved this with nonverbal actions and various found elements. The grouping of trees that he worked with, situated in the very civilised context of a park in central Aalborg, attest to how for centuries people have been trying to “tame” nature; making it conform to varying cultural ideals. As successive art movements have been built on top […]

Sounds like Catastrophes is part of a series of works that intuitively research catastrophes.

As part of an initial workshop, the young performers invented instruments made from everyday materials and objects, to form an catastrophical orchestra. Playing their […]
