This workshop took place at the folk high school herning højskole, herning, november 2006.

The participants of this fiction was the participants of the drama course at Herning Højskole. The fiction said that the sisters had taken over a bombed hotel during the war between The Whites and The Reds.

The condition of the hotel is fragile and poor due to times of war. The people working there stay inside. Few guests are visiting the hotel. Large parts of the hotel have collapsed, but not the bar, where people gather day and night. The bar, though, has run out of liqueur, and the sink and other kitchen devices have been taken down, to find more space to sleep in. However, the atmosphere of the bar still fills the rooms. Some are waiting for the apocalypse, others for better times; others again just want to give in to the party. The sisters have taken the hotel into custody and are educating the staff and the guests of the hotel according to the principles of the state of white.

This workshop took place at the high school aurehøj gymnasium, gentofte, as part of an at-course on the 60es in danish, english and music, september 2010

Rooted in an art-based research process we are currently working on creating the new educational system – The school of the new paradigm.

Six European partners work together on the central question: How can a sensory approach and an artistic attitude contribute to an education that leads to a more connected and sustainable world? Through artistic interventions and workshops, we want to demonstrate that this approach can and should become the heart of all education.

Adopting a sensuous and artistic attitude is joyous and rewarding for everyone involved. It has a profound and lasting impact on the individual level. Moreover, it is conducive for deep learning and can align with the regular school curriculum.

SenseSquared will demonstrate that this new approach:

  • isn’t difficult to understand and apply,
  • can gradually be integrated into the existing school system and the actual curriculum,
  • has a profound positive impact on children-teachers interaction,
  • deeply and intuitively connects with the humanity of teachers and children,
  • contributes substantially to the intrinsic motivation and joy of learning.

SenseSquared proposes a hands-on approach from the very start, with exercises, contexts, tools and kits that are very easy to pick up, and immediately challenge the existing formats.

SenseSquared is a collaboration between Musica Impulse Centre (BE), Companhia de Música Teatral (PT), Marres, House for Contemporary Culture (NL), Sisters Hope (DK), Stavanger University (NO) and Maastricht University (NL).




Developing the concept of Sensuous Reading in collaboration with Hillerød Bibliotekerne in the project: Sunde læsefællesskaber for udsatte borgere 2022–2023

Sisters Hope have launched a strategic collaboration with The Danish Cultural Institute under the title Sensuous Society – Beyond Economic Rationality. The ambition is to take the Sisters Hope and the project internationally and thereby unfold and explore our performance method and the concept of Sensuous Learning in a variety of different cultures. The project is also an exploration and investigation of common experiences and the change of attitudes after the pandemic around the world and not at least the planting of seeds for potential new and more sustainable approaches to life in a time where the ground is fertile.
