LA 13

We are pleased to present the 13th edition of one of Europe’s leading international performance art festivals, Live Action,. The first strand of this 13th edition will take place from June 14 to June 16 2018 showcasing 10 extraordinary artists from besides Sweden also Indonesia, Finland, France, the United States, the United Kingdom and Bielorussia.

Like every year Live Action features an afternoon program Common Ground which takes place outdoors in the city centre of Gothenburg at Stadsbiblioteket and Brunnsparken. In the evenings Live Action will be at 3e Våningen with its exquisite black box and white box space.

This years curatorial theme is ”United” in reference to the upcoming general elections on September 9 2018. It is a symbolic theme calling upon everyone to defend the values of democracy, of freedom, equality, brotherhood, humanity, respect, tolerance and solidarity. Values that further characterizes performance art and not the least the different artists invited to take part in Live Action.
