Essi Kausalainen

Essi Kausalainen studied performance art in Turku (BA) and in Helsinki (MA), Finland. For Samtalekøkkenet September 2012, Essi presented “I and other Letters”

For “Live Art for Kids” i Kristiansstad (Oct 31st, 2015) og Ystad (Nov 1st, 2015), she presented a work about plants and their communication.

After the performance we asked the kids to draw the performance as a starting point for discussion

Om 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.
