I´m going solo in this thread but the funny guys from Improv Everywhere is doing some kind of happening during the warm up days, the news are a little bit old but here it goes.
Look forward to our best display of art ever
This year’s festival features a number of art events that involve you in new thought-provoking ways. Get a glimpse of what to look forward to.
This year Roskilde Festival’s ‘More Than Music' content is more ambitious than ever before. This means international art that involves you and wants you to participate. Roskilde Festival is not a white museum. Here you can play, if you dare to join in.
Today we reveal a few of the international treats that you can experience this summer.
The Danish premiere: Improv Everywhere
Charlie Todd, the man behind the phenomenon Improv Everywhere creates mega events involving up to 20,000 people that manages to engage people in a humorous and provocative way. Maybe you've heard about 'No Pants Subway Ride'? – if you haven’t, check out the video at the bottom of the page.
This summer you can - among other things - look forward to a huge party including a string quartet and tuxedo and prom dresses at the swimming lake when this American performance artist ad is crew comes to Roskilde.
The sign-maker: Steve Powers
He transforms dead, sad neighbourhoods into poetic street corners with his ‘Love Letters for You’. 50s-kitschy signs and letters are Steve Powers’ characteristics. This international artist also has the prestigious job of painting the grandstand wall by Orange Stage.
The intimate provocateur: Einat Amir
Imagine going into a soundproof box where you meet someone you don’t know. Speakers tell you what to do and in four minutes you’ll get to know another person. Together with Lilith Performance Studio in Malmö, the acclaimed Israeli artist shares her magnificent performance ‘Enough About Me’ with us. In an age where we constantly expose ourselves, it’s Einat Amirs wish that we ask: How well do we really know the person next to us?
The city art craftsmen: RAUMLABOR
The Berlin-based urban activists have created an installation at Roskilde Road Trip in Berlin, which with is interactive facade with street art and poster collages comments critically on the urban space and capitalistic companies.
It might be difficult to imagine how it will all go down at the festival – but you can definitely look forward to be challenged at this year’s festival. Well, if you really dare to join in.
