Sisters Hope is a Copenhagen-based performance-group and movement with an associated international troupe of performers from various backgrounds. Sisters Hope was founded in 2007 by Gry Worre Hallberg and Anna Lawaetz. Gry Worre Hallberg has been the artistic director since 2014. Sisters Hope operate in the intersection of performance art, research, activism and pedagogy. They draw on immersion and intervention when they manifest on the stages of everyday life and beyond. They are working proactively toward manifesting a more sensuous and poetic educational system. Currently working to open and unfold more sensuous modes of learning in the large-scale Nordic project Sisters Academy (2014 – 2020). Was awarded with The Bikuben Foundations’ exhibition prize VISION in 2016.
Sisters Academy is a school in a world and society where the sensuous and poetic mode of being is at the center of all action and interaction. It defines the primary mode of being and is the values on which all societal institutions are building – including the school. Thus Sisters Academy is the school in what we term a Sensuous society – A potential new world arising from the post-economical and ecological crisis.
