Sisters Academy is a school in what we term a sensuous society – a world and society where the sensuous and poetic mode of being is at the center of all action and interaction. It is a performance-experiment and movement initiated by Sisters Hope. The project focuses on the educational system and new more sensuous and poetic modes of learning. Read more here .
Sisters Academy Academy #6 - The Boarding School is co-produced with Den Frie Udstillingsbygning in Copenhagen, Denmark. Den Frie is transformed into a boarding school in September/October 2017 – A laboratory to explore what the school of a Sensuous society might be.
Sisters Academy – The Boarding School
Sisters Academy – The Boarding School is a large-scale immersive and durational performance-installation.
The entire building is transformed into a boarding school where the co-participating audience enroll as students at the school. They are provided with a bed, a set of clothes and basic school materials. In this universe they live their everyday life but on rather different conditions as this is not a school like others but one of a possibly future sensuous society.
Besides taking classes, falling in love with their schoolmates, cooking, doing chores, attending morning and evening gathering they engage with the Sisters Academy staff.
Furthermore the format holds different layers of participation; visiting artists/researchers/teachers, school excursions, concerts and beyond.
