METROPOLIS BIENNALE 2011

Metropolis Biennale is a festival of art and performance in the city. This year festival is organised by Copenhagen International Theater with support of Art Council, Performing Arts Committee and Copenhagen Commune.

There are gonna be presented many art performances, installations and activities in Copenhagen during August. Everything you can imagine in between human being and urban space.

The city becomes an open stage.

Starting from inside space of the city sporthalls and clubs events will continue to squares and harbours. Finally some of the perfomances will take place at the Amager beach where nature, the sea and windmills will greet you.

Some of performances offer to dissolve in urban environment with a help of blind pathes through the city noises and smells. For example there will be offered a tour through the hidden tunnels of the city that filles with 20 performers as a  human sculptures on the way.

The city becomes a storyteller.

One of the city hotels will tell a story about its invisible stuff people, that get a chance to come out from behind the scenes. As a participant you can snoop in their secrets and everyday life.

It will be also possible to influence the city on your own, if you take part in folding the giant paper boat, that supposed to sail through city harbour with an artist on board. Or you can try to build a city room yourself at the Prags Boulevard, just don’t forget tools! Or you can send a sms about where is the best place for 100 dancers to meet in the city and join their colourful crowd afterwards!

Art in all formats.

There are expected art in all formats in the city, all you can imagine.  There will be performance from Ny Circus in the truck, Soundart in the Black Diamant Library, flashmobs at subway stations, world famous street dancers on the stage, four writers at the main train station that are busy with writing a reality novel, or even an open air concert with 500 instruments that are routes by wind.

There will be presented 19 performing activities from different artists all over the world. Many of those events are free to join.

My participation.

I’m going take part in performance Bodies in Urban Space as a guide for the audience. I’m also looking forward to see many of performance as a watcher, and you will find pictures and emotions from me here.

Tonight I’m going to join 100 dancers Live Art Installations (happening), that starts from Sankt Hans Torv and continue to Kongens Have.

    I’m curious to find out what blog system you happen to be working with? I’m having some
    small security problems with my latest website and I would like to find something more risk-free.
    Do you have any recommendations?
