Case Study

Gry and Nikolaj will present the visionary exhibition project ‘Sisters Academy – The Boarding School’, which is based on radical principles of immersive and participatory audience engagement.

In 2017 Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art was transformed completely into the large-scale, immersive performance-installation Sisters Academy. More than 30 performers staffed an experimental boarding school in a potential future society. Audiences could only access the school by enrolling as a student for at least 24 hours, which naturally included a night in the school dormitory. Here the students encountered a full-blown immersive world, where the sensuous mode of being structured all actions.
