Works with Live Art Denmark
2015: Children’s Bank at Live Art for Børn 2 in Ishøj (Denmark), Malmö (Sweden) and Landskrona (Sweden)
2016: Premiere of 50 farlige ting at Live Art for Børn 3
2017: Kid’s Bank at Horsens Happening

The Children’s Bank
As a part of Horsens Happening we established the Children’s Bank in Horsens. Participating kids made their own money and explored what they could do with it. The project gives children and their adults multiple opportiunities to reflect upon the importance of money in our lifes.

At Live Art for Børn 2 the Kid’s Bank opened in Ishøj (Denmark), Malmö (Sweden) and Landskrona (Sweden).

 

50 farlige ting
At Live Art for Børn 3 we presented a Danish version of Forschungstheater’s “Da Gefahr” called “50 farlige ting”. Since then kids have tried out dangerous things in more than 70 shows of our version all over Denmark and Scandinavia. The performance is still touring today.

About the Artists
We have collaborated with Fundustheater/Forschungstheater from Hamburg/Germany on several occasions. This is a statement about they made about their work and motiviation: “Kids are explorers of the everyday. For them to light a match can be something extraordinary that needs focus and time and creates an experience. The same is true for everyone who practices Live Art. For Forschungstheater kids are perfect accomplices. And in return Live Art can provide something that is essential to all of us, but especially to kids and their wellbeing: the acknowledgement of their action and their thinking, the reassurance that everything counts, that everything can make a difference, the frame of beauty and reflection and the experience that we can set it up anytime and anywhere we want.”
