Reclaiming the live aspect of the Performing Arts in the current times

Mission statement: We are aware that the current times are asking for pausing any process of production and to use this opportunity to reflect, think, listen, observe and eventually make some changes in our lives. But at the same time we know that some artists have an urge to respond to the current events. Since the appearance of the corona crisis we have witnessed how artists are showing their abilities to adapt quickly to new conditions and to continue producing work, especially in circumstances of uncertainty. On one hand, the proliferation of multiple online formats in the performing arts has allowed artists to continue developing their practices and sharing their work with an audience. On the other hand, there are many artists resisting to accept this new reality as normal and feeling unsatisfied digitalizing their practices. This is why with this working group we would like to deviate the attention away from the online formats and to insist on thinking about what are, during these days, the chances for offline formats to continue existing.

This is a personal initiative by Felix Ott and Diego Agulló with the support of Tanzfabrik Berlin.
