Opening Show

It is with great pride that Copenhagen Radio Cinema Festival 2019 opens April 11th with three live performances from three of the most interesting and talented new voices that the international scene of audio storytelling and sound art has to offer!

Experience Phoebe Wang (US), Hana Walker‐Brown (UK) and Mooj Zadie (US) live on stage in the historical movie theater Dagmar Biograf. Here, the artists will perform three unique audio works, two of them world premiering on this evening, that explore and challenge the scope between fiction and reality, between sound art and performance art and that examine the intimacy, sensibility and curiosity emerging when space, art, and audience meet in one shared experience.

The event will be in English.

Hana Walker-Brown on Establishing Intimacy

In our visual world, the audio/radio format still remains one of the most intimate ways of expression. Intimacy is an inherent trait of documentary and storytelling. Vital to establish and to explore as we venture out into very different worlds. This Master Class will unpack the establishing of intimacy before, during and after the creative making process. Intimacy within the space between the world of the doc maker (and ultimately the listener’s world) and that of the story. Touching on playfulness and friendship, technology, trust and meaning and the challenges and insights that can be drawn from that experience.
