Benedikte Esperi is an independent performance artist, choreographer, film maker, researcher, producer and curator based in Sweden. She runs the companies Dansverk and Benedikte Esperi Produktion since 2007. She was initially trained for the ‘black box format’ but is published in a variety of sites, such as public realm, contemporary art venues, dance- & theatre venues, festivals and elsewhere – both in local and international contexts. The encounter with sites, intentions and citizens nurture her choices and actions where the body is both the object and subject, mediating current topics. Her works range from solo, co-productions and ”community art” within the genre of performance/live art, installations, dance for screen and choreography. Artistically she´s often referred to the fora of post-modern dance and avantgarde aesthetics.
She invented the public art concept KOREOARTscape
