About the Artist
Kristján Ingimarsson (b. 1968). Originally from Iceland. Moved to Denmark in 1992. Trained, among other places, at the School of Stage Arts, the actors’ school at the performance art theatre Cantabile 2 in Denmark (1997). He is the founder and artistic director of Kristján Ingimarsson Company (1998), as well as a freelance director, actor and performer.

Kristján is a multitalented artist in the field of visual theatre. He is full of surprising and comic figures. His physical language is in constant development in a blend of mime, slapstick, acrobatics, clowning, dance and theatre. Stylistically, his theatre is characterized by high-energy, rhythmic sequences, surreal effects and comic as well as touching moments.

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.
