In this interview with Gry Worre Hallberg from Sisters Academy, we talk about immersive performance strategies as tools of urban transformation. Gry tells the story about a school in a world and society 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. A potential future world arising from the post-economical and ecological crisis.
Sisters Hope is a Copenhagen-based performance-group and movement with an associated international troupe of performers from various backgrounds. Sisters Hope operate in the intersection of performance art, research, activism and pedagogy. They draw on immersion and intervention when they manifest on the stages of everyday life and beyond and are working proactively toward manifesting a more sensuous and poetic educational system.
