The Poetic in performance art
June 25th till July 8th 2017, Quartair The Hague
International performance art event A collaboration Between P.S. – IPA – PAS
This year the PS foundation collaborates with IPA – International Performance Art Association and PAS – Performance Art Studies on the topic of “the poetic in performance art”. The event runs for 12 days and includes one-week long workshops , live performances by both local and internationally renowned artists, premieres, talks, panel discussions, presentations and screenings.
Two women artists whose trained in different culture depict the relationship between each other in a symbolic dimension. While symbolizing this relationship with spontaneity, a satin ribbon produces a kind of collage with the material. This collage, including body, material and space, reaches an expression that reflects the instant interactions of two women - with all their socio-cultural background. At times the artists, who are stagnant and harmonious, and who draw an aggressive and incompatible path, discover the space as an extension of the body and discover that they share a common limb.
