Fanclub is part of LEK!

Fanclub is part of LEK! (PLAY!) – an exhibition that explores what patterns of thinking and professional groups lie behind the construction of spaces that encourage play, and invites visitors and creatives to consider how we design or do not design for play.

Opening September 4th at 9-11am and running until November 3rd at Form/Design Center in Malmö

It’s been a great experience and we look forward to present and share our contribution SPIRALEK – a score for play.

“In playing as well as in dancing the body is used as a tool where all senses are put into action and boundaries are tested and challenged. A temporary meeting place where we get an opportunity to explore different relationships and hierarchies together with other(s). With the play-generator SPIRALEK, Fanclub wish to inspire both adults and children to create their own playful situations. An opportunity to awaken imaginations, exchange experiences as well as getting to know each other and the city in which they live.”

Hope you can make it!

Fanclub ♥ Choreography in Action

Fanclub has been invited to be part of Choreography in Action, hosted by Dansehallerne at Kunsthall Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, 30 Oct 2017 at 7-9pm

What vocabulary belongs to the dancer and how can she as a figure make us think, move, act..? During a two year long, disseminated process called We Are Dancers, Fanclub has collected a wide range of materials related to the figure of the dancer – applying these in artistic and non-artistic situations with the desire to explore other grounds and potentialities. At Charlottenborg Fanclub will perform a self-interview based on the materials and methods from this process, where the dancer, the collective and structures of work and everyday life will be central.

Hope to see you there!

Fanclub in Utflukt

We just got the good news that our collective-writing ‘Partners in Crime’ is part of the Norwegian journal ‘Utflukt’ – an idealist driven magazine with a broad orientation towards culture, literature and social issues. Two issues in a row the focus has been on exploring collectivity as human fellowship, ideological principle, community organisational  tool, cultural expression and (new) economic reality. It’s an honor.

If in Oslo go and visit the release party on Thursday and give them all a hug from us.

Take care out there

‘Partners in Crime’ was originally presented as part of the RISK’s Shared Blog

Fanclub ♥ HAUT

A venue, a bar, a gallery 

There is a new place in town! On the top floor of Huset i Magstræde the old black box have come to new life. The collective behind HAUT consists of young and ambitious theatre people, connected by their wish to promote Danish and international free stage art groups. They offer residencies (“in exile” periods), co-productions and invite artists from across the art fields to be part of their vision of a vivid and creative art community. The season is set continiously keeping the programme fluid and up-to-date, and you can apply for a collaboration with HAUT at any time – they go through the applications every month.

This week Fanclub visit HAUT for a period of exile – come see what we are up to this Saturday 27 Sep at 7.30 pm. Free admission.

See you then and there – the bar opens an hour before the showing, so come have a beer and check out the fine space of HAUT!

Fanclub ♥ Dansebjerg

A peaceful residency with lots of space

Fanclub has just returned from a mini residency in an amazing house, situated on a hill on the beautiful Danish island of Samsø. Together with the video artist Anna Maria Helgadottir we spent three days recording video for future projects, including material for a new music video for the danish artist Jomi Massage…

The house is called Dansebjerg and it comes complete with several generous bedrooms, an open fire place, a stunning view and a big dance studio! It’s a rare opportunity in Denmark – a space for creativity and peace and a free zone from the everyday noise that tends to take over. We highly recommend to check it out!

Big thanks to Poul and Ulla
