Xing presents the fourth edition of Live Arts Week that will be held in Bologna from 21st to 26th april 2015, based at Ex Ospedale dei Bastardini, together with a week-long special project at MAMbo - Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna.
This event dedicated to live arts, unique in Italy, hosts a blend of new productions that revolve around the presence, performance and perceptual experience of sounds and visions.
Live Arts Week is a 6-days event of 'existential athletics'. It does not put art before the artists, but exposes to forms of sensitivity and ideas, welcomes hybrid and polyglot works, hosts creative singularity, weaving a sort of counter-design of use.
The program offers a calendar of live works (performances, environments, concerts, expanded cinema and live media with unique dates, productions and previews) presented by important personalities in the international and contemporary research scene.
Gianni Peng, a name that will accompany the festival in its organic growth, indicates the time of these transitions. It is a phenomenon, not a person: a new identity, unlikely but real, to be treated as an abstract concept.
