Director & Actor
Danish director Nina Kareis is, together with Scottish composer Pete Livingstone, a founding member of the Livingstone Kabinet from 2000. They met in 1994 and started working together at the legendary Café Graffiti at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where Nina was the in-house compère. Livingstone Kabinet sees themselves as a collective of writers, composers, choreographers, performers, dramaturgs, musicians, designers and directors who create performances which are cross-disciplinary and define their own language. Their work is characterized by an image-rich, tightly choreographed staging style, using original live and recorded music together with sound design. Whether narrative or non-narrative, their pieces play with time and the order in which events are presented. Observers have also commented on a sense of the absurd, the incongruous and of a flawed yet beautiful humanity which permeates their work.
