♦ MPA-B PROGRAMME: May 25th ♦

25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th and 31st: these are the last seven days remaining on the MPA-B programme! Make the most of them, and start from today with a day PACKED with performance art activities, workshops, interventions and performances to cater for all tastes and adventurous spirits.
Despite the weather, several artists from today’s programme will take to the streets of Berlin to carry out a variety of site-specific interventions. Pack your umbrella and waterproof gear and show them support!

And now…in chronological order:

Today, two 2 day-long workshops with the artists from the SHADOWS series curated by Laura Biagioni will take place consecutively at N.K. project space. Join them both! From 11:00-15:00 you can develop a relational performance through the conceptual analysis of the creative process, with the artists from the Mali Weil group during a workshop titled RELATIONAL MACHINES FOR EPHEMERAL EXPERIENCES (cost €50 for both days). And from 16:00-21:00 you can join Stratofyzika and their workshop SHADOWS OF aiKia where you will learn how to develop your very own movement-based interactive audio-visual performance (cost €50 for both days).
