About this event

Warehouse9 has invited 8 fantastic artists who are each offering 5 individual one-hour support sessions in May - June. Sessions are informal and led by the artist seeking support. This is an opportunity to connect with another artist and talk about anything from new artistic ideas, to your artistic process, to challenges in navigating this world as an artist...etc.

Beck Heiberg is a choreographer and performer based in Copenhagen, working with conceptual performance formats, and is investigating queer- and transpolitical aesthetics in his praxis.

INTRODUCTION FROM BECK HEIBERG

Beck Heiberg (1987) is a trained performer, dancer, choreographer from Copenhagen, Denmark. Where he recently has returned after several years living in Paris and New York, where he showed original work at the off off Broadway theater Irondale Center and on the site-specific New York staple INSITU festival. He has obtained diplomas from Hotstepper Dance Education in Copenhagen and Juste Debout School in Paris and is currently studying Theater- and Performance Studies at Copenhagen University.

Beck has since the beginning of his carrier worked with questions around gender norms and the theme has been both an explicit and implicit part of his choreographic praxis. He is interested in investigating physical movement and aesthetics through the lense of the transgender artist and are using his background in voguing, funk styles and house to inform his performances. He works in a broad field of theatre and performance, but his own original work derives from building concepts up around movement and is often related to personal experiences.

He is the choreographer for the Reumert nominated youth theatre Jeg er Silas by the acclaimed theatre company HiLS DiN MOR and is currently working on the production PRIDE at the Royal Danish Theatre by Falk Richter. In the fall of 2021, he will premiere the durational performance installation Digging a Glittery Grave, a co-operation with fellow choreographer Charlie Laban Trier, on IPAF at Warehouse9.

Beck Heiberg is particularly keen to support dancers and performance artists within the queer spectrum.
