Full artist information is finally online

Let’s welcome the last weekend of summer with the last updates about the participants. From now on online information about two unique duos is available.

One of the two is the duo of a Man and a Machine from Estonia, Industrial Devolution. We are intrigued for various reasons, one of those being the fact that it’s going to be an industrial sound performance. We have known the Man part of the duo since the very first CREATurE Live Art, thus this is a second reason for being intrigued. Then there are plenty of others.

Same goes for the second duo we’re presenting today : Canadian / Lithuanian collaboration between Hélène Lefebvre and Inga Galinytė. CREATurE proposed them to try this collaboration which started some months ago online and will continue and take (live) form once they meet in Kaunas.

Line up being complete, we are preparing the schedule to let you all performance lovers prepare for your weekend-out-with-performance-art.

Joakim Stampe & Chuyia Chia : from the other shore of the Baltic

It’s merely a month left till CREATurE Live Art! Let us introduce you to a couple of Swedish performers Joakim Stampe and Chuyia Chia. They’ve pretty much travelled the whole world in these last several years, creating astonishing work in the streets and galleries, parks and pavements in near and far places – setting foot pretty much everywhere in Europe, and extending their horizons to other continents.

Joakim Stampe has visited Kaunas and performed in CREATurE Live Art 2013, in the crumbling halls of former shoe factory, then used as an exhibition and studio space, called Fluxus Ministerija. He has also given a workshop in the streets of the old town, introducing fellow artists and unaware citizens to water-painting in water, and, eventually, beer. Those curious are invited to check the verity of this fact in the photo gallery here.

We’ve been following the work of Chuyia Chia for quite a while, mesmerized by her intense works, engaged and engaging, reflecting the state of the world and silently raising awareness of those participating.

Read more about both of the performance artists and the concept they’re working around for their performance in CREATurE here.

Joakim Stampe’s and Chuyia Chia’s participaton in the festival has been made possible with the generous support of the Kulturkontakt Nord Mobility Fund.
