Gry Worre Hallberg operate in the intersection of performance art, research, activism and future studies continuously executed in 1:1 co-created experiments such as Dome of Visions, Sisters Academy and In100Y. Currently work on the project The Sensuous Society: Beyond economic rationality – Suggesting a sensuous mode of being in the world. For many years she has aimed at enriching environments with an aesthetic dimension through the use of performance art, universe design and ‘fiction pimping’. Gry 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, among them Sisters Hope (ongoing project: Sisters Academy), Fiction Pimps, Club de la Faye, Staging Transitions and The Poetic Revolution. Gry is a member of the global, urban network Theatrum Mundi initiated by prof. (NYU and LSE) and urbanist Richard Sennett and have completed several projects, articles and publications on intervening and relational performance art and new societies. Also see here. Gry is currently conducting a practice-based PhD at the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies, University of Copenhagen. The conceptual framework of ’Sensuous society’ functions as a backdrop and manifest for her practice. She uses the conceptual frame of ‘Sensuous learning’ to explore the learning experiences that are unfolded in her practice. In her PhD she aims at unfolding these practically informed frameworks theoretically. The current working title of her PhD is: "Sensuous Transformation: Democratizing the Aesthetic and Sustainable Futures" and her current research question : "What is sensuous transformation and how does it contribute to a sustainable future through sensuous learning?".
This site provides an overview of relevant platforms to engage in her writings and talk on her practices in sensuous learning. This site was built to progress with her current practice-based PhD initiated in 2016.
