by Proxy is a nordic live art collective that after previous collaborations in smaller constellations within the group, gathered around the project “Stop Being Poor”.

Our collective strength stems from the versatility of our artistic qualities. With experience in different aesthetics, expressions and forms, combined with skills from different fields such as dance, music, scenography, installation, academia, lm and acting, we wish to reconsider how we experience theatre and other forms of live expressions.

We approach our material holistically by developing and exploring space, light, text, movement and sound simultaneously, in a search for dialogue, interaction and gaps between the elements of performance. We find it a crucial part of our process to weigh into questioning and experimentation, as strategies for deep listening and play. 

by Proxy are the artistic leaders of Teater Momentum for their 11th season (2017/18).
