#tvss15 Public Programme

We're proud to announce the kickoff of The Ventriloquist Summerschool public programme with real Ventriloquist action!

11. august: Jan-Robert Henriksen

The Norwegian, legendary ventriloquist, Jan-Robert Henriksen, will talk about his own practice and introduce the characters he has created and performed since the mid-80s!

You will get the chance to greet and meet the Ventriloquist Summerschool participants and tutors as well. Welcome!

12. august: Tableau Paper

As a continuation of The Ventriloquist Summerschool Public Programme we'd like to welcome Tove Sivertsen for a conversation with the model Jakob Landvik and her Tableau Paper teammate Henia Gamborg Kjørsvik about the dynamics of directing and being directed.

Tove is Editor-in-chief and founder of the fashion publication Tableau Paper. She has substantial experience working as a photographer both in Norway and abroad for various fashion publications, artists and advertising clients such as D2, ELLE, Prestage, Personae, Imsdal, Nils Bech, Kaibosh, Svean and Diemme. In 2013 she founded Tableau Paper that has become one of the new influential platforms for fashion in Norway.

We welcome you once again to meet and greet the participants and tutors of The Ventriloquist Summerschool and gaining an even deeper insight into what we're up to.
