ArTransit / Performance - Conference
The Performance-Conference intended to create a theoretical and reflexive angle on the story and the gender of Performance Art from the early Sixties to the present. The evening offered a direct dialogue with the public, the operators of the sector, the performers, the actors, the directors from Italy and Switzerland involved in the ArTransit project. During the event, beyond the interventions of the participants and the presentation of historical documents of the Bones Festival Bern and the Theatre Out Off Milan, the film “John Cage’s Train” from Oderso Rubini and “trainCagetrain” by Lelli and Masotti were screened.
