workshops, performances and panel discussions
This year IPA collaborates with P.S – Performance Site The Hague 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.
P.S. – this is Live explores the poetic in performance art by interrogating: how can a performance artist approach the poetry of live action? How can we make something poetic visible? The quality of the topic you are interested in might be alluring, sensitive, soft or, on the contrary, heavy, dramatic and dark. At the same time, the poetry of the topic might be humorous and absurd, gloomy and obscure or light and ephemeral. You might explore different aspects of live action: rhythm, repetition, the symbolism of words, actions and objects. Your work can contain text or just an image/movement.
The events will take place in the the former ‘The Hague Breadfactory’ built in 1902 on the Toussaintkade in The Hague.
The monumental building is managed by Foundation B141. In the building 12 artists have their studios, and on the ground floor is a gallery space of 200 m2. The building was renovated in 2010. Quartair is one of the longest running artist-run-spaces in The Hague.
Address: Bilderdijkstraat 141A
2513 CN, The Hague
We are looking for
P.S. – this is Live is looking for artists with a personal approach and a sincere means of expression. A small intimate gesture is as valid as a big dramatic act. We are interested in the ideas that you can develop through time and the process of transforming thoughts into actions that have visual qualities. This can be achieved in many ways and it doesn’t matter through which means you choose to express yourself. We are up for objects, sound, light, technology or just bodies in space.
