International Performance Lab


May 21, 2017: Meeting at CLICK Festival

Together with CLICK Festival, Denmark’s renowned event dedicated to cultural innovation, FuturePerfect seeks to explore and initiate an international performance lab and residency that supports, organizes, presents and disseminates projects that foreground transdisciplinary practice and inquiry. The lab’s central concern is the future of live performance in the context of rapidly changing information and interactive technologies and increasing exchanges among science, design, art and commerce.

At CLICK Festival in May 2017, FuturePerfect organized a meeting to begin to discuss concepts, design, and implementation of this performance lab. Participants included: Mikael Fock (Artistic Director, CLICK Festival and The Culture Yard), Søs Krogh Vikkelsøe (CLICK Festival and The Culture Yard), Kajsa Giertz (Teaterchef, Helsingborgs stadsteater), Kitte Wagner (Teaterchef, Malmö Stadsteater), Geir Lindahl (Advisor, Performing Arts Hub Norway), Tina Tarpgaard (Choreographer, Recoil Performance), Peder Bjurman (Writer and Director, FMR Production), Wayne Ashley (Founding Executive Producer, FuturePerfect Productions), and Xander Seren (Associate Producer, FuturePerfect Productions).
