2018 “Full circle – what goes around comes around” at Live Art for Children

Full circle – what goes around comes around
To enjoy the taste of a cake from Odense’s best bakery in this performance, you first needed to find a child who would feed you! At the 2018 edition of our festival “Live Art for Children”, Victoria presented the participatory and relational performance “Full circle – what goes around comes around”. Children were tasked with feeding adults, their parents or strangers with different foods. The intimacy of the action provided plenty of food for thought about how our life-long relations with food are established during childhood.

About the Artist
Victoria Stanton is from Montreal, Canada. She is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher/curator/educator who works with live action, human interaction, video, film, photo, drawing, and writing. Her time-based work includes performance for stage, performance for the camera, actions in public spaces, and one-on-one encounters in intimate contexts. Investing a performative presence and consciousness within multiple spaces/times, she continuously underscores the complex aspects of “transaction” and the possibility for transformation. Considered a pioneer of transactional practices in Quebec, Stanton has presented exhibitions, performances, infiltrating actions, and films/videos in Canada, the U.S., Europe, the U.K., Australia, Japan and Mexico.

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.
