Fifth “CREATurE Live Art” is starting tomorrow

We are glad to finally announce that the festival “CREATurE Live Art”, international feast of performance and live art, is starting tomorrow, Friday the 16th of September!

Having all of the artist arrived, we are watching them take over the spaces of the gallery. Here the quiet preparation of Alastair Maclennan and Sandra Johnston is taking place, Joakim Stampe and Chuyia Chia are setting up in the neighbouring space, while Weeks & Whitford are counting red roses somewhere out in the city.

The upper floor is occupied by Kainulainen & Latva, while the French performance artists’ Barbara Friedman and Gilivanka Kedzior, the RED BIND duo, are exploring the still-green city of Kaunas to get the inspiration and the energy for both performances, on Saturday and Sunday. Hélène Lefebvre and Inga Galinytė, after intense preparations and try-outs of different materials, are out to take a fresh breath. In the meanwhile we’re welcoming Industrial Devolution artist(s), entering the space after a long trip in the car from Estonia and trying to trace at which point of their journey are Jasmin Schaitl and William “Bilwa” Costa.

The space is waiting for a new day to break, and for the events to start. The only sound now is the chatter of the performance photography workshop participants, led by Manuel Vason, working on a manifesto of ethical photography.

Each year this festival is an intense, varied, fruitful, lovely experience to our small team, and we are happy to work in order to make this exceptional event happen. This is a humbling experience, filling our lives to the maximum. We’re starting tomorrow, pop in to take part!

Love –
