Sensuous Governing at H.C. Andersen Festivals (Odense)

25.08.23 — 27.08.23

We are really exited to present the site-specific work Sensuous Governing in Odense. The manifestation will be presented by H.C. Andersen Festivals from August 25 – 27 as a poetic intervention at the City Hall of Odense.

As a site-specific performance Sensuous Governing is manifested at venues that represent the governing structures of our society. Through a poetic intervention aiming at awakening the sensuous and poetic it explore the audiences-participants’, or citizens’, dreams for the future of society. Sensuous Governing is an extension of Sisters Hopes distinctive practice, which through artistic interventions unfolds the sensuous and poetic as core societal values.

At the beginning of the two-hour long manifestation, the participant will be greeted by a performer – The Evoker – and led into the building blindfolded. The participant is then guided into the governing building led  by several performers. They will participate in small performative rituals in formulation of dreams for the future of governance and meet their Poetic Self. Afterwards, the participants ceremoniously donate these dreams to the Sisters Hopes’ Archive.
