LIVE ARTS WEEK, MAMbo, BOLOGNA
Live Arts week / MAMbo, Bologna (IT) / April 15 – 23, 2016.
Xing presents at MAMbo – Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna, the fifth edition of Live Arts Week, that will start with a special project as a prologue on 15th April, and will continue in the week from 19th to 23rd april 2016.
This event dedicated to live arts, unique in Italy, hosts a blend of new productions that revolve around the presence, performance and perceptual experience of sounds and visions.
Live Arts Week gives space to ‘existential athletics’. It does not put art before the artists, but exposes to forms of sensitivity and ideas, welcomes hybrid and polyglot works, hosts creative singularity, weaving a sort of counter-design of use.
The program offers a calendar of live works (performances, environments, concerts, expanded cinema and live media with unique dates, productions and previews) presented by important personalities in the international and contemporary research scene.
The fifth edition is a meditation on the taste for signs and the taste of each sign, when signification is on leave. Drawing enigmatic trajectories and rebus, it casts a strange light on the phenomena of the world. It’s a collection of celebrations and ceremonies, of cycles that open and close. In this large degree of interpolation, in what establishes the distance between language and experience, the spectator constructs a hinge: like a pendulum swinging, embarking upon navigation between the two chimeric shores of nature and culture.
Gianni Peng, a name that will accompany the festival in its organic growth, indicates the time of these transitions. It is a phenomenon, not a person: a new identity, unlikely but real, to be treated as an abstract concept.
