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.

INTRODUCTION FROM METTE HORNBEK

I have been working as a producer in the performing arts industry since 2007 with a range of independent artists with great artistic variation, from physical theatre to political performance, traditional theatre, and new music pieces. I believe I have an eye for spotting the problem areas, points of interest, and needs of the particular artist I work with.

Since 2013, I have also presented auto-fictional performance pieces under my own name. Working from a personal narrative as a POC, I seek to hit the sweet spot where humor and pain collide with satirical projects exploring structural racism, hate, fear, sex, love, and other burning hot topics. My artistic approach may be humorous, but is always political and rooted in real life personal experiences with racism, my hybrid identity as a transnational adoptee, my fear of the future on behalf of my child, my questionable sexual history etc.

I mainly work with the performance collaborative Salon New Love (www.salonnewlove.dk). We present shorter pieces in a collective framework with a focus on experimenting with formats, media, and artistic approaches.

I was born in 1980 in Seoul, South Korea, was adopted by Danish parents at 4 months, and grew up in Aars, Northern Jutland, where I spent the first 18 years of my life, after which I fled to Copenhagen.

WHO IS THE SESSION FOR?

This is a free service that we offer to artists and artworkers at any stage in your career.

No idea is too small. These sessions are intended to support you by offering an opportunity to talk about anything from artistic ideas, project development, contexts for your work and challenges in navigating this world as an artist.

Mette Hornbek is particularly keen to speak with performance artists, producers, anyone with a good story to tell.

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE SESSION?

This is a one hour session. This is an opportunity to be connect with and be supported by an experienced artist in a 1-to-1 format. Everything spoken about in the meeting is confidential.

The session is led by you (the artist seeking support). This means that you lead the direction of the session. We recommend coming prepared, with a clear idea of why you are seeking support.

We recommend reading the artists introduction before booking. The artists hosting the sessions have different experiences, knowledge and expertise, and your experience will vary based on the person you meet. The artist hosting the session can only speak from their work and embodied experiences.

HOW ARE THE SESSIONS DELIVERED? WHAT ACCESS SUPPORT DO YOU OFFER?

The sessions are primarily delivered online via ZOOM (unless stated otherwise). Our Zoom account can access Otter.ai captions embedded and we can offer other access support upon request. Please indicate any access requirements when you book your session.

After booking, you will receive a step-by-step guide on how to access your session.
