Workshop & performance

Workshop with Iggy Malmborg

In collaboration with the Danish Performing Arts School Efter- & Uddannelse, Billedkunstskolen and Liveart Danmark

Experience Iggy Malmborg's work "Satan" and get an insight into his artistic choices, expressions and working methods at this 3-hour workshop.

In the work “Satan”, Iggy Malmborg challenges the discomfort of not being able to distinguish true from false or the hero from the villain. We live in a particularly uncertain time in terms of the ethical values ​​we claim to build our society around and the way we live them.

The workshop is based on seven existential questions that not only explore Iggy Malmborgs individual working method and expression, but also invite you to reflect on your own creative processes:

  • Which methods do you use in your work?
  • How do you come up with ideas for projects?
  • What kind of experiments do you do in your process?
  • How do you generate material?
  • What inspires your work?
  • How do you decide what material to use from your experiments?
  • What criteria do you use to select your material?

Iggy Malmborg is a performance artist and actor based in Malmö. Although trained in traditional acting, his works span a wide range of aesthetics and styles – both in solo and collaborative work. Iggy Malmborg’s greatest artistic interest is to use performance as a model on which the discourse of the plays can be applied directly. Using strategies comparable to minimalism, he sheds light on the politics of theatre, as a hierarchical machine with (unconscious) patterns of inclusion and exclusion. Over the years, Malmborg’s works have gained international recognition and have been hailed for presenting a complex intellectual discourse in a concrete way, filled with humor and warmth.


Participants in the workshop will be a mix of professional performing artists in all disciplines who are interested in performance, as well as students from the Academy of Arts and Theater and Performance Studies at the University of Copenhagen respectively.
