The performance artists are from Denmark, Belgium, Germany, Belfast, Derry and Donegal.
The artists will be making individual actions and also collaborating together, using materials, objects, voice, sounds, movement and stillness. Time will be their friend, enabling processes to expand under the microscope of its embrace. Some actions will be playful , others more task directed – though people have been known to whistle while they work. Intuition, memory, perception; response to others and the spectator’s presence will be their guide. Spontaneity, awareness and presence will sustain and support.
