CREATurE 2018: excuses and festival dates

CREATurE’s been away for way too long. We tell ourselves that all projects – big and small – experience a breakdown and incapacity to manage their websites. But it might also be just something we’re telling ourselves to feel better. In the meanwhile, since the last post and now, we’ve been working on things. So before we go straight down to festival dates, there’s this.

First. Catalogue

By the end 2017 we managed to release a CREATurE catalogue. It contains works that were performed at CREATurE 2012 – 2017 (sadly, due to the quality of some photo material, not all of them). Our goal is to distribute the catalogues to those that have performed as well as to the libraries or reading rooms. However, due to our lack of finances, we can only distribute as much as we can hand in/out directly. 

Therefore it travels really slow. So if you have participated in CREATurE sometime before and would like to have your copy, contact us and we can come up with something.

Second. CREATurE Live Art festival

Since start 2018 we were working on the festival. As always, we are subject to external funding, the results of which came in only on the very end of May. And this, as usual, leaves us with only 3 months to carry out the project. But CREATurE 2018 is confirmed to take place on the 7/8 September 2018. It will be shorter (performances will take place in two days, Fri and Sat), condensed and will end with a party. Yes, we missed partying and post-festival parties are simply the best.

In the upcoming weeks we will inform you about the theme of this years festival and confirmed participants. We will also soon announce the call for the performance art workshop led by one of them. Seriously, can’t wait! Hope you too.

Third. Outdoor performances

A thing CREATurE has been thinking about for some time, was performing outdoors with as little as possible organizing work. A “trial version” of this was us coordinating a collaborative performance session during another event in Kaunas. Which sort of led or didn’t, as the idea was developped simultaneously by both CREATurE persons, to ORO – public space performance meetings in Kaunas, the first of which is taking place today. Big day!
