Lotte Kaiser

Work for Live Art Denmark
2015 “It won’t always grow back” at Live Art for Kids 2, Arken. With BBB Johannes Deimling.

It won’t always grow back
Together with BBB Johannes Deimling, she performed “It won’t always grow back”, one of a longer series of performances by Johannes. Brightly colored materials, including yellow gift wrapping paper, white paper stars and blue paper napkins, were displayed and dispersed across a set of stairs, set in the corner of one of the museum’s galleries. All actions are carried out in a never changing moderate tempo and in perfect unison. The artists tie straw around their feet and walk a while in their straw shoes, tie the paper stars around their heads and throw glittering confetti. A purely visual, sensual experience.

From minute 26:17 on the video you can also see the group performance “Freedom” by PAS youth Studies presented at the same festival. Some images are below.

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.
