Today we are joined by Kirsten Dehlholm, the founder and artistic director for the groundbreaking performance group Hotel Pro Forma, who have been staging extravagant and spectacular performances for 30 years in Denmark and abroad. Her group is currently exhibiting their first ever museum style show at GLstrand here in Copenhagen, and it's well worth a visit, especially for visual artists looking for works created from a different starting point. For us it was an eye-opening and thought-provoking conversation, and it was especially interesting to think about her work as a departure from the traditional route for visual artists. We can all learn from this, and it helped us remember that we don't all have to find the same way. We can't recommend the show at GLstrand enough, and it's only up until Nov 29th, so there are only a few days left.

Here are images from previous Hotel Pro Forma performances:
