As part of VIVA! Art Action, DARE-DARE presents the work of Marina Barsy Janer & Isil Sol Vil as well as Roberto de la Torre.
Happening from the 4th to the 7th of October at Les Ateliers Jean Brillant, the 2017 edition of VIVA! Art Action promises to deliver an effervescent program of performances, public interventions, and participative actions. Nine partners join VIVA! to realize a memorable sixth edition of the biennial event, which will showcases 20 artists and a number of off-site projects that offer unique encounters in unexpected settings. Committed to keeping action art accessible to all audiences, all events presented as part of VIVA! are free to attend.
Prior to the opening of our headquarters, join us October 3rd at 6pm to kick-off VIVA! 2017 with the double launch of More Caught in the Act and The 7th Sense at Artexte . Occurring in the presence of a number of the publications’ artists, authors and editors, the event will be the occasion to celebrate two recently published major books that address both the local andnational performance art scene.
From the 4th to 7th of October , VIVA! will present four programs of action taking place in and around its headquarters. From Montreal to Spain, through South America, the United States, Canada, and as far as Bosnia and Herzegovina, the artists of the sixth edition of VIVA! will share incisive actions, both delicate and deafening. In addition to the central program of performances, several actions will take place on the margins of the festival's official dates and venue. Whether they call for collaboration, wandering, or alert sensory perception, the actions deployed in continuance, repetition, or spontaneity will not fail to captivate both the initiated and the curious. As demonstrated through our selection of artists, VIVA! supports and encourages the hybridization of forms, the development of risk-taking practices, and bold collaborations.
Privileging direct encounters between artists and the public, each performance evening will be preceded by a convivial and affordable meal cooked by the artists-in-residence Sonja Zlatanova & Andreja Dugandžić. At the heart of VIVA! since itscreation, the VIVA! kitchen's first collaborative project will generate performative actions that will punctuate the festivalthroughout the week. Starting at 6:30pm every night, join us to take part in carefully crafted moments that can only beexperienced during communal meals, which are offered in classic or vegetarian versions.
Covering the festival’s activities from an uncanny perspective, Mégane Voghell & kimura byol-nathalie lemoine, will provide unique documentary, performative and poetic content that will feed the festival's blog and Instagram platforms. Don’t miss out, the sixth edition of VIVA! will be memorable!
