Stuart Lynch

Works for Live Art Danmark
2011 Performance at Samtalekøkken
2013 “Lynch Concert” at Hitparaden 1

Performance at Samtalekøkken
For one of our Samtalekøkken events in 2011, Stuart performed a monologue piece, in which he impersonates a Texan minister, the devil, and baby Jesus, at times several of them at once.

Lynch Concert
Stuart brought his “Lynch Concert” to our first Hitparaden festival. In this virtuoso showcase, he amazes his audience by demonstrating some incredible things that can be done with the human voice.

In earlier collaborations with the makers of Live Art Denmark, Stuart Lynch took part in the celebration of Antonin Artaud in 1995 and the performance program “Looking for Johnny” in 2003.

About the Artist

Artist Lynch is a god given choreographer, director and performer. The work is insightful, talented and stays true from beginning to end.

Stuart is a voice and performance artist, theatre director and teacher based in Copenhagen, Denmark. He began his performance career as a dancer from 1990 to 1992 with Min Tanaka’s now disbanded Japanese Butoh dance company, ‘Mai-Juku’. From 1993 until 2000 he was co-director of the Deqincey/Lynch performance company in Sydney/Australia. Parallel to this company’s work he developed his solo performance series, ‘Paradance’, which included collaborations with French philosopher Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007) and double bass player Peter Kowald (1944-2002). He toured his most recent solo work, “Lynch Concert”, extensively in Denmark and throughout Europe.

He is the founder of the “Theatre Switch Training” method, or TST, and is the director of “Københavns Film & Teaterskole” KFTS. More about the activities of Stuart’s Lynch Company up to 2012 can be found here.

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.
