De Naive

A collaboration between dance artists
Charlott Utzig, Julie Moviken and Harald Beharie.

De Naive is a state of being. Our practice spans from scenic performances, pop-up performance, site-specific work and into cyberspace. We like to call it attentive artistic work with a profound and satirical approach. We want to explore and challenge social conventions and established rules through a bodily expression. A common denominator for our work is making dance available to the public; a desire to reach out to a wide range of people through fieldwork, public pop-up performances and the active use of social and digital media. 

We believe that the world (and the art field) needs more naive energy!!!! De Naive can be interpreted as an image or expression of our millennial generation, where it can seem like there are no limits for where to reach and what to achieve. A mentality characterized by high ambitions with a naive belief in that “dreams will come true”.
