"Fried egg" - crazy cabaret
A collaboration between the Icelandic singer Nina Björk Eliasson
and visual artist, composer & singer Tine Louise Kortermand.
"Fried egg" is an art performance inspired by the cabaret. The ‘cabaret’ consists
both of new and past works, based on both Kortermands and Eliassons explicit
work that takes a starting point in the feminine space. The cabaret also takes
output in earlier collaborative works they've had with other artists – among others
the poet and sports journalist Jørn Mader, the artist Camilla Gaugler and Charlotte
Clausen from the artist group Pussy Power.

Fried egg - Crazy Cabaret
Saturday 31 May 2008, Odense Harbour.
What do you expect with such a title?
Your imagination can really explore.
The artists Tine Louise Kortermand (Denmark) and Nina Björk Eliasson (Iceland)
pulled eggs on a string of different short artistic performed gems.
The audience was invited to sit on chairs facing a deferred canvas for visuals and
a makeshift kitchen equipped with hotplates, microphones and sound systems.
The show starts simply by Eliasson preparing an omelette where sounds from
the everyday chores, kitchen noise is recorded by Kortermand, later to be used in
a sound collage. As you settle hole in an egg to get fried eggs, so was settled a
hole in the "woman" as a modern concept and lived life.
