Tårnby Torv Festival is a creative attempt to maintain the connection between performativity and its most important players: the citizens right around the corner.
The festival is initiated by Tårnby inhabitant and performance artist Andreas Liebmann and takes place in, and around, a vacant space on the 2nd floor in Tårnby Torv Center. Visitors of Tårnby Torv Festival are invited to experience the children’s performance “50 dangerous things”, a fitnessperformance about sports and politics, a youth panel debating the role of culture and society, concerts by students from the music school, site specific works by students from the Danish National School of Performing Arts, public talks about art and citizenship, movie screenings and food.
Point of departure for the festival, is artistic director Andreas Liebmann´s research, investigating the role of performance in relation to the public space. Historically, stage art has been a vital part of the democratic society. A place where people were confronted with relevant social and political issues. How do we keep theatre and performance relevant for the everyday people?
With national and international artists, students from the Danish National School of Performing Arts, institutions and citizens from the neighborhood around Tårnby Torv, the festival will emphasize the opportunities and importance of community and performace.
Following the festival the initiative will continue from the space on the 2nd floor in Tårnby Torv 7.
