Sisters Hope was one of four international performance groups — Sisters Hope (DK), Savage Amusement (AUS/DE), Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen (DK) and Katalin Halasz (UK) — exploring and activating the intimate and sensuous in the so-called Performance Sense Laboratory at Roskilde festival 2014.

Questions to the poetic self

Who are you right now?

Do you have a name right now?

Sense your poetic-body: Is there a certain energy connected to your poetic being – or several that your poetic being prefers?

Rethink when you met the Sisters the first time and you’ve choose to contribute?

What is your mission in life?



What do you want to explore in the lab? Your lab…

What is your hypotheses?

How do you want to explore it?

How do you want to collect your data?

In which form do you imagine that the results could be represented? Maybe there are several forms?

What is the logic in your lab?

When do you decide that you achieve a result?

Do you work with a set-up? Could the experiment fail in your laboratory?

If something can fail how do you re-do an experiment?

How do you prepare your human research object for your experiment? Maybe you have several strategies?

In what state of mind would you like to leave your human-research object?

What could be done in order to achieve this goal? Does this requires special instruments or obejcts?

How can your research be transmitted to The Sisters (who will pass it on into the secure hands of The Protector of the Archive)?

Do you have any worries about your experiments or something you think it would be important to be aware of?
