Scandinavian Performance Art in New York

Scandinavian performance art is on the move. Live Action New York 09 features in its first edition some of the most important contemporary Scandinavian performance Nov. 6-11.

The show feature performances from artists like Roi Vaara, Irma Optimist and Pekka Kainulainen, from Finland Kurt Johannessen (Norway), the Icelandic Love Corporation, Elin Wikström and Hans Sternudd (Sweden), and Fluxus artist Eric Andersen (Denmark). Live Action New York also presents emerging and thought-provoking visual performance artists Jin Jane Kaisen (Denmark), Agnes Nedregaard and Stein Henningsen (Norway), Joakim Stampe (Sweden) and Mimosa Pale (Finland). Featuring the crème de la crème of Scandinavian performance art in an intense and exciting event going beyond mainstream contemporary art, Live Action New York 09 is here and now, it’s ephemeral, it has attitude, it’s fleeting, and it is avant-garde.
