Kirsten Dehlholm - Hotel Pro Forma

The students in the class Experimental floral design went to Copenhagen to visit an amazing and true artist.

Kirsten Dehlholm created this company in 1985, so this year they are celebrating their 30th year anniversary. It all began with smaller productions, and it has developed to bigger performances that has been evolving around the world. Until now there have been 30 big productions and 20 smaller ones. 

     

           

Experimenting with light and space, is something important and iconic for Kirsten. She is very facinated with space and wants to bring the space into the stage.

We also went to see her exhibition on GL Strand in Copenhagen. To make perfomances into exhibitions was a difficult thing to do, Kirsten said.

Here she took fragments and parts out of her perfomances and made them meet each other in a new way in this exhibition. This gave all the perfomances a new dimension, and opportunity for the audience to reflect.

Some of her perfomances are; Kosmos+, Operation:Orfeo, Black Box and War Sum Up. Some of her upcoming perfomances are; NeoArctic and Madame Butterfly.

These props are from some of here perfomances. Random stuff with no meaning.

 

You should investigate this woman and her thoughts more!
