After ten years as artists in residence in Holstebro, we landed in Billund, the town of Lego and the second busiest international airport of Denmark, in order to establish here DET FLYVENDE TEATER. Kunstpartiet, “The Art Party” will be part of it, continuing to exist as a community-based performance project in the region, while DOO performing arts group will remain an international company and satellite. We will bring our experiences respectively of ten and five years of producing art in Denmark and the world.
This new project fit into a multi-year series of artistic works where we have focused on the alterity. We assumed different important social roles and we created an osmosis between art and the local reality. In the past five years, we have interacted as politicians, police officers, paramedics, activists and museum guardians, in an organic process of development, research and integration into the Danish society, with the aim of creating also new communities, and reviving them through a daily contact with art and culture.
