Gry Worre HallbergPerformance artist
Gry Worre Hallberg operates in the intersection of performance art, research and future studies, recently crystalized in the project In100Y facilitated by House of Futures and funded by the VELUX foundation. She currently works on the project The Sensuous Society: Beyond economic rationality – Suggesting a sensuous mode of being in the world as the outset of a new paradigm going beyond economic rationality. For many years she has aimed at enriching environments with an aesthetic dimension through the use of performance art, universe design and ‘fiction pimping’. She is the co-founder of a range of organizations and movements within the field of performance art applied in a series of different everyday-life contexts, not at least the streets, among them Fiction Pimps, Sisters Hope (ongoing project: Sisters Academy), Club de la Faye, Staging Transitions and The Poetic Revolution. She has completed several projects, articles and publications on intervening and relational performance art and new societies. Besides her performance art-practice Gry has a MA in Theatre- and Performance Studies, with a minor in Cultural Economy and Aesthetic Leadership, and is also an Associate at RUC, Roskilde University Center, DK, in Performance Design.
