Sustainability in Clown and Festival Work
Panel discussion with presentations
Monday, 12/03/2012(6.30 pm)
Are festivals isolated events or do they possess a sustainability that can affect a continuous work of art?
Can the significant impact of a festival stimulate the art scene and create a new consciousness in terms of recognizing clowning as an art form?

Brutal boxing mixes with anarchist clown logic, creating an hour-long sweaty boxing match somewhere between performance and modern clown art.
Klinsj is a performance about a boxing clown who wants to be loved more than anything else. In tune with the clown, musician Magnus Børmark plays instruments, samplers, and effects to create a complex soundscape for the boxing match. Questions about the way we relate to each other arise when the sensitivity, naiveté, and playfulness of a clown are combined with society’s norms and expectations and thrown into the ring in a brutal sport. In fact, some say the reason clowns exist is to remind us of what it means to be human.
"Superb boxing match between laughter and crying. Lindeberg is the perfect princess clown" (Adresseavisen)

In recent years Katja has been touring the world with her performances. Her latest productions include Om bare Rosa kunne trylle, which was produced in cooperation with DKS Trondheim in 2011.
