Janne Kristensen
Your Space + My Space = Our Space

How should ‘Our Space’ be created?

We have invited Janne W. Kristensen, who is the artistic director of the Association for Integrated Modern Dance in Denmark (FIMD), to set the topic and facilitate this Peer to Peer.

Janne has invited Eik Leknesund Elnes, Toke Broni Stranby and Cath Borch Jensen to a conversation about space – the choreographic, sensuous, bounded, architectural, warped and inaccessible space!

The four artists invite everyone with an interest in dance, art, philosophy, pedagogy and architecture to a dialogue about how we now, and in the future, create space for all types of people and movement.

Bring your views and ideas, and let’s talk about the possibilities for a joint future in dancing, sensual and public spaces.

What is Peer to Peer?
Peer to Peer is a series of artist-driven conversations focusing on professional sharings about dance, choreography, and its impact. You will meet colleagues in a facilitated yet casual space. Peer to Peer is about getting closer to your community and being curious about what is happening in the field – and with each other.

The invited artists will set the different topics and facilitate the conversations. The specific program for each event will be announced during the season.

We start by meeting for half an hour of informal chat and something to drink. Then we continue with the facilitated part by the invited guest(s) of the day. After the event, it is possible to hang out and continue the conversations.

This season Peer to Peer takes place at Huset-KBH (Balsalen), Rådmandsstræde 13, 1466 Copenhagen K, 1st floor beside Spisehuset

The topic and format are chosen by the invited artist in collaboration with Dansehallerne. How you choose to participate in the conversations is up to you.

We meet approximately twice a month, and the event is in English. You do not need to sign up – just show up.

If you have questions or ideas for the Peer to Peer program please write to Dansehallerne, Anna Katrine Korning, akk@dansehallerne.dk.
