Lotte Kaiser

Work for Live Art Danmark
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, Lotte performed on a set of stairs situated in an unusual position in the corner of one of the museum’s galleries. Brightly colored materials, including yellow gift wrapping paper, white paper stars and blue paper napkins, were displayed and dispersed across the stairs. All actions were carried out in uniform moderate tempo and perfect unison. The artists tied straw around their feet and walked for a while in their straw shoes, tied paper stars around their heads and threw glittering confetti. A purely visual, sensual experience, for which, Johannes claims, as for all of his performances, no logical explanation canbe given, except, “perhaps, in poetry only”.

From minute 26:17 on the video you can see the group performance “Freedom”, presented by Johannes’ PAS Youth Studies at the same festival.

About the Artist

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.
