CREATurE 2012

maz10CREATurE is a creature,

who will be born for the first time in 2012 June 20th-22nd during the festival „Kaunas in Art. Talking“. CREATurE is performances, live action, experiments, music and immediate experience of art. The idea came to Vaida Tamoševičiūtė and Daina Pupkevičiūtė because of the thirst of live experience, searching for a different artistic language and a dialogue with the spectator. It came to because of a need to do, to create, instead of remaining silent, even when the conversation is not that comfortable. Our idea was strongly supported by the gallery “Meno parkas”, which also gave the opportunity for this new creative initiative to be born. This year the annual contemporary art festival “Kaunas in Art” also felt the special need for talking thus it embraced the young, inexperienced, but very open “CREATurE”.
This year there will be an opportunity for audience not only to watch the live artists’ performances, video documentations and movies about performance, but to participate in the workshops lead by professional performance artists, as well as watch, listen and participate in presentations and discussions. The festival team seeks to create an open field for discussion, based on the expression of performance art.

It’s not by chance the guests of the festival are non profit organisations lead by artists: ]performance s p a c e [ from London and Art Container from Tallinn. The festival will also have local performance artists: both young and experienced experimenters.

“CREATurE Live Art” is organized by “Meno Parkas”, in partnership with “Fluxus Ministerija”. Supported by Kaunas Municipality. Sponsored by friendliest bar in old town – “B.O.”
