DEVELOPING IMMERSIVE THEATRE STRATEGIES

Fix&Foxy, Sisters Hope and Live Art Denmark epitomize three very different approaches to creating immersive theatre experiences in Denmark. The multiple award-winning Fix&Foxy has always tuned in to significant topics of our times – including references to film and tv-history as well as putting audiences on the spot. In AVATAR ME they seized the need to meet people in other countries without traveling. Live Art Denmark involves the audiences in a playful space. In their work “KABOOM – The art of destrution” they empowers audiences with the forbidden joy of smashing things. The highly acclaimed and award-winning performance group Sisters Hope are spearheading a whole new way of performance art work. In their groundbreaking 5-year performance they introduce INHABITATION as a new artistic paradigm stimulating ecologic connectedness.

Why these immersive strategies? And what kind of responses to the emotional and intellectual landscape of post-pandemic mindsets can the immersive theatre bring to human beings?

In the discussion: Tue Biering (Fix&Foxy), Gry Worre Hallberg (Sisters Hope), Henrik Vestergaard (Live Art Denmark), Nathalie Bonjour (Harbourfront Centre – CA).
