“A new spirit floats over Jutland: the spirit of the art party! We believe in this simple truth: to strive after beauty through art. “
Since January 2016, the citizens of Jutland’s municipalities have been able to meet a special “Party”, made by 31-year-old Italian performer Giuseppe L. Bonifati alias “Jeppe” and his Hungarian “First Lady” Linda Sugataghy from the International DOO Performing Arts Group. The aim is to gather people through Art, so Giuseppe has established KUNSTPARTIET “The Art Party” and realise – in collaboration with Holstebro Municipality and other municipalities in Jutland, the Danish National Arts Foundation, Aarhus 2017 European Capital of Culture and the Nordic Theatre Laboratory – interactive performance events in the Jutland region. MAYOR IN RESIDENCE (January 1, 2016 – June 18, 2017), has been the longest performance project and “election campaign” ever made by a couple of artists.
