Episode 6 - Graduate Students from DDSKS
June is a significant month for students, since it is a time of exiting and entering! For this wonderful lot, it is time for an important leap towards future dreams, and we wanted to hear about the feelings and the bodies that are present during this transition. Listen to Sara, Tobias, Andreas, Antonia, Evita and Jon talking about special memories from their four years at The Danish National School of Performing Arts, about their plans and wishes. Be ready for them!
In order of appearance: Sara Grotenfelt - Tobias Sköld - Antonia Harke - Andreas Haglund - Evita Tsakalaki - Jon Hoff
Episode 5 - Lars Dahl Pedersen
We keep going and we keep evolving! everyone we wish you knew strives towards creating a solid and recognizable frame, but sometimes life knocks at the door… For this episode, only Georgia had the opportunity to meet up with Lars Dahl Pedersen, to have more of a conversation than an interview on his innovative work, with combining Dance and Philosophy. Two practices that tend to wave at each other while keeping a safe distance, find common ground and make sense in Lars’s physical and theoretical doing.
Episode 4 - Emma Arnoldi & Manon Siv Duquesnay
We ride on the success feeling we had from the previous episode and invite again not one but two female artists. Manon Siv Duquesnay and Emma Arnoldi are to be found in their dressing room after they danced to clubby beats, hold their breaths in a bathtub and shared one-night stand stories from female perspectives. All elements from their performance ‘Af vand’, as presented at XENON scene of Teaterhuset. We ask into the creation of their collaborative project ‘Project V´ and touch upon subjects of representation, activism and curating as artists.
Episode 3 - Anna Lea Ourø & Amalia Kasakove
On the 8th of March, the International Women’s Day, four women meet to talk about art. Anna Lea Ourø and Amalia Kasakove are invited to Forsøgstationen to talk about their latest collaboration and the creation of the dance-performance ‘Sure’. We could definitely hear this artist duo talking about their work for hours and hours, eventhough sunshine and singing birds are to be seen from the window of our office. Their calm pacing and poetic stream of thoughts are contagious. We get to know about their inspiration, artistic motivation and creative methods, and encourage you with this podcast to find where the piece ‘Sure’ plays again and go see it!
Episode 2 - Marlene Bonnesen
We find Marlene Bonnesen at Danseatelier on a Friday afternoon. We plus one other Danseatelier member, Snorre Jeppe Hansen, occupy the space and the traces of his practice are to be heard in the background. We settle down in the kitchen where Marlene makes sure we feel comfortable. During the next hour she shares with us her perspective on being part of Danseatelier, and how her role within this collective connects to her work as a freelance dancer and facilitator. Work, which is inspired by artists and books such as the catalane choreographer Ángels Margarit and Michel Foucault's 'Utopian Body'.
Episode 1 - Andreas Liebmann
In the beginning of January we visited Andreas Liebmann at his working place 'Public Space' in Tårnby. This is where he organised and realised Tårnby Torv Festival 2017 / 2018, which was the focus of our discussion. Before starting our conversation we collectively built our very own sound studio with the help of what we could grab and find in the space. An old matress, blanckets, used sofas and a vintage coffetable framed the conversation that gave us insights on Andreas's artistic motivation, collaborators and work methods.
