LIVING STRUCTURES was co-founded in 2007 by Klaus Kruse, Dani d’Emilia, Dugald Ferguson, Ula Dajerling and Verity Standen. It is a collective of artists that create exciting visual, physical and musical performances within large-scale immersive structures.
We produce strong, stimulating experiences for our audiences creating multi media events in mind-baffling environments. The vast objects that we construct are designed to dramatically mutate the space surrounding our shows. The transformations that our spectators experience inside and around our ‘structures’ manipulate and play with their senses, provoking strong physical and emotional sensations. This heightens and adds new dimensions to how they encounter the music, theatre, puppetry, choreography, video, sculpture and soundscapes in our shows.
We see our work as an entrapped wild animal constantly prowling the circumference of its confines; tirelessly seeking the edge of what contains it and trying to find ways to overcome its limitations.
We believe that a healthy and wild performance must challenge the frontiers that bind it whether these perimeters are physical or psychological, real or self-imposed.
