Spring 2016

In Spring 2016, Delfina Foundation launches the second stage of Performance as Process, a series of residencies and events that explores performance as a way of approaching and understanding the world, just as much as it is a medium of producing art or engaging with the public. The programme encourages experimentation through research, productions, collaborations, skill-sharing, or reflecting on the performative aspect of artistic practice, which could include live art but is not restricted to it.

The first iteration of the programme took place in winter 2015 and brought together 12 participants to broadly explore how ‘performance’ – from daily routines to public protests to religious rituals – plays an inherent role in cultural production.

In Stage 2, themes of translation through choreography and language are embedded in the practice of many of the participants. The invited artists consider how re-articulating objects, sounds, texts, movements, cultures and environments through performance can produce new subjectivities. Furthermore, this extends to the systems, methodologies and processes used to translate or transpose one thing to another.
