Valerie Kuehne

Work for Live Art Denmark
2013 Concert-Performance for Hitparaden 1

It is not easy to describe the work of Valerie Kuehne. Just go to Youtube, go to full screen and enjoy the ride. This furios performance begins with the description of the Gravitron, a scary carnival ride, and continues with a song about the same ride, which in turn begins with a recreation of what one must feel like taking the ride, performed on the cello. All this happens in the first 3 1/2 minutes of her show, and it gets ever wilder after that.

About the Artist
Valerie is a cross-pollinated work of chaos. Fusing together music, performance art, narrative, and experimental curation, she has systematically bifurcated her time between touring the planet, performing in as many unexpected settings as possible, and building a community for experimental music and performance art in New York City and beyond.

Much more info can be found on her website.

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.
