Enjoy the evening reception at the Copenhagen City Hall and be part of the interactive and immersive performance piece “Sensuous Governing” by the nordic performance group Sisters Hope.

SENSUOUS GOVERNING
Sensuous Governing is a new immersive performance by Sisters Hope (DK), exploring the future city of a Sensuous Society through an intimate and otherworldly journey into The City Hall and your Poetic Self.

 

Sisters Hope is a Nordic-based performance group and movement with an associated international troop of performers and creatives from various backgrounds.  Sisters Hope operate at the intersection of performance art, activism, research and education and use immersion, intervention and intimate interactivity in their expansive performance art work both within and outside the art institution.

Their work is rooted in the vision and manifest Sensuous society – A potential new world arising from the post-economical and ecological crisis where the sensuous and poetic mode of being is at the center of all action and interaction. It defines the primary mode of being and is the values on which all societal institutions are building – including the school. They are currently working to manifest more sensuous and poetic learning environments amongst other through the large-scale international project Sisters Academy.

 

 

 

The Press and Participants Says:

It was striking how good they were at hitting it spot on – thus my stay at the Sisters Academy became most of all a personal journey … Via a foreign, artificial, altmodisch framework, one is guided to a more open sense of what is hiding right here in the present – within and around you. It actually works. I feel clear and vigilant, but at the same time slightly spaced out. Do I dream, and am I awake?. Politiken

“It’s something as wild as a cultural experience that requires commitment, and it has forever changed the way I view art.”. I DO ART

Sisters Academy – The Boarding School” is a 24-hour playful and generous experience. Here you close down the rational and open up to the sensuousness and aesthetics, a total performance that is incredibly demanding and successful… At the same time, the Sisters Academy shows what can be done within the framework of art when the work is engaging, when enough time is used and when the research is included.”.

“I take many beautiful pictures of the world with me, and my body sparkles with gratitude of holding these memories within me. I could never have imagined the world to appear like this, I have never been overwhelmed by such beauty before.”. Participant
