Welcome to Sweden’s leading annual international performance art festival Live Action. In its 8th consecutive year it will take place at Gothenburgs art centre, Konsthallen, from June 5-9 2013. But also downtown in public space at Brunnsparken and Kungstorget as to reach new audiences and promote cultural democracy.

For this eigth year of Live Action we are very pleased to present some of todays most poetic and intriguing contemporary performance artists. Like the legendary Nigel Rolfe from Ireland who has opened up a time in his intense schedule to join Live Action. But also the chinese artist Yingmei Duan who is based in Germany and recently finished a highly acclaimed work at the Hayward Gallery in London. From May 18 to July 2 she is also residing at the new LIVE AiR residence which we have initiated in collaboration with the regional art agency Kultur i Väst.

We celebrate this 8th year of Live Action with the conviction that your experience of this years festival will follow you in your body and mind throughout the year.

So stay tuned for more information on the detailed program which you will soon find here as well as on our Facebook page. Let the sun be with us and make this 8th anniversary a real feast. Welcome.
