Sophie Grodin talks about moving from London to Copenhagen: Leaving her large performance art network and establishing a new one in a smaller city.
About the speaker
We are excited to announce Sophie Grodin, a collaborative performance maker who recently moved back to Copenhagen after 6 years in London.
Performance art is a performance presented to an audience within a fine art context, traditionally interdisciplinary. Performance may be either scripted or unscripted, random or carefully orchestrated; spontaneous or otherwise carefully planned with or without audience participation.
Sophie will be talking about the lack of confidence that comes with moving to a new place, the anxiety of not having the collaborators she is dependent upon and the challenges that come working with a genre of performance that is not as established nor acknowledged in Denmark as in London.

So, if you’re curious about theatre and what a collaborative performance maker do, join us Friday 26th of January. ✌
