IPA The Hauge 2017
This year P.S. foundation invited the most prominent coaches to conduct the series of masterclasses dedicated to performance art. Jürgen Fritz represents IPA (International Performance Association), while BBB Johannes Deimling is the main figure of PAS (Performance Art Studies). The two platforms introduce contrasting approaches to the live art. During the P.S. events they will share the podium and collaborate for the FIRST time!!!
The performance art will be explored from the point of view of the poetics. How can we make something poetic visible? The quality of the subject 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. For the shows P.S. selected pieces where the poetic is reflected in a deep personal approach and the most sincere means of expression.
Presenting performance art pieces to the public is important, but it is also necessary to EXCHANGE and GATHER IDEAS. That’s why we introduce a Thought Wall . The opnions and reflections of the visitors will be collected and put on the wall to serve as an inspiration for the festival participants.
Also AFTER-MORNING-Presentations, Talks and Discussions will take place, so that the artists can be asked about their works and the direct contact between the performers and the audience can be established.
