Kate Mahony (UK)

Kate Mahony Works with Live Art Denmark 2014: “Foley” at Hitparaden 2 Foley Sampling traces its roots back to the technical experiments and manipulations of musicians and artists in the 1940s, finding its popular realisations in hip hop, electronic dance and industrial music of the 70s and 80s. In this hilarious performance, Kate presents a very low tech version of sampling. Entering the stage with a large plastic bag full of everyday objects that she brings out one at a time, she first crudely imitates the sound the objects make with her voice, than demonstrates the original sound by using (or, in some cases, abusing) the object.

Louise Orwin (UK)

Louise Orwin Work with Live Art Denmark 2014 “Humiliation Piece” at Hitparaden 2 2016 “Pretty Ugly” at Live Art for Kids 3 Humiliation Piece “Humiliation Piece” is a one-woman show which puts the private world of the female masochist into the excruciatingly public arena of the theatre. Comic, awkward, and at times frightening, it asks exactly what an audience wants to see on stage, and challenges what we think of as ‘entertaining’ in performance. Louise performed “Humiliation Piece” at our Hitparaden 2 festival, 2014. Pretty Ugly Pretty Ugly originally started its life as a YouTube experiment. After noticing a world-wide trend of teenage girls posting videos asking viewers to rate […]

French & Mottershead (UK)

French & Mottershead Work for Live Art Denmark 2014: Afterlife at Hitparaden 2. Afterlife UK-based artists Rebecca French and Andrew Mottershead presented Afterlife at Hitparaden 2. Afterlife was one of a series of works reflecting on the death of the body and its relationship to place and time. Lying on a towel on a wooden deck, each audience member equipped with a mp3 player, the work consisted of an audio narrative that invites listeners on a poetic journey beyond their own death, and through the natural processes of decomposition in a woodland setting, compressing decades into minutes. The development of the work was supported by Cifas, Brussels. About the Artists […]

Adam Young (UK)

Adam Young Work with Live Art Danmark 2015: Samtalekøkken, Royal Theatre School, Copenhagen. On the sixth of June 2015, Adam Young performed at our Samtalekøkken at the Royal Theater School in Copenhagen. Or actually he didn’t. He performed somewhere near a park in Leeds. His performance was broadcasted live via Skype to our event. While Adam performed, there was dead silence amongst the young acting students. Many of them literally sat with open mouths – they had never seen anything like this before! Most of us concentrated on watching a good performance. Adam chewed a whole packet of chewing gum and worked with a big hammer. He had paid 34 […]

Robin Deacon (UK/US)

Robin Deacon Works for Live Art Denmark 2011 “The Argument against the Body” at Samtalekøkken 2014 “White Balance: A History of Video” and “Spectacle: A Portrait of Stuart Sherman” at Hitparaden 2 The Argument against the Body Robin Deacon performed “The Argument against the Body” at Samtalekøkken in Warehouse 9 in February 2011. It is a complex meditation on the ancient mind-body dualism, one of the oldest and utterly unsolvable philosophical conundrums: What am I, my mind or my body? He applies this question to the relationship between performer and audience. An entertaining and very smart lecture performance, the video of which can still be seen at Youtube, even though […]

Oreet Ashery (UK)

Oreet Ashery Work for Live Art Denmark 2012: Artist’s presentation at Samtalekøkken Artist’s Presentation Oreet, born in Israel, educated and living in the United Kingdom, gave a slide lecture about her work. At the time, she focused on photos of herself taking on male identities, in particular those of orthodox jewish men. In the images, the artist in her everyday self is almost unrecognizable, using intricate hair, beard, costume and make up to perfect the transformation into the other one. In her lecture, in the video below, we hear her speak about her relationship to Israel and the complexities of her images that produce a tension between her own female […]
