Performance Art event in Frameries
Fully dedicated to Performance Art, ACTUS events are an opportunity for an encounter between performance artists who are active on the stage of contemporary art and the audience .
Ephemeral , Performance Art is a unique experience of sharing time , space , action. It happens only once and is based on the actual presence of the various protagonists. The actions proposed by performers are generally plastic , non-theatrical , without artifice or effects control . They leave the viewer the freedom of a subjective reading.
The first edition of ACTUS has set up this project as a privileged platform for experimentation and reflection on this artistic movement. It was held at Les Brasseurs (Liege) in February 2012 and organised by Ricochets in collaboration with the University of Liege. Five artists from Germany and Belgium presented their work in a solo and "Open Session" (collective improvisation Performance Art), see the following link for more details.
For ACTUS II, 8 artists and one philosopher will unpack their luggage at the Fabrique of Frameries and exchange their practices for two weeks.
This collective residence will lead to a public presentation on March 22nd 2014.
Residents: Elisa Andessner (Austria) - Marita Bullman (Germany) - Alice De Visscher (Belgium) - Béatrice Didier ( Belgium) - Rachel Echenberg (Canada) - Maud Hagelstein (Belgium) - Lala Nomada (Mexico / Germany) - Sylvie Pichrist ( Belgium) - Evamaria Schaller (Germany / Austria)
