672 hours long live process without intervals

A new chapter for the performance art scene in Turkey.

International performance art platform in Turkey to bring performance artists together, Performistanbul celebrates its second anniversary with a long durational live process and with the launch of a unique initiative, marking a brand-new chapter for the performance art scene in Turkey.

The platform takes the first step toward a new phase by presenting NEEDED: YOU, a long durational live process that will last for 28 days, 672 hours straight with no intervals, to be held between 16 February – 16 March 2018 and by laying the foundations of Performistanbul Live Art Research Space, which will be Turkey’s first initiative, providing a dedicated space for performance art.

Curated by Simge Burhanoğlu, the live process entitled Needed: You, will include 10 Performistanbul artists presenting 9 performances in the building of the Research Space, under construction. Needed: You invites us to a live process, presenting transparently all stages of a performance. It is an existential invitation, aiming to encourage the audience to find their own state of mind where the audience and the artists nourish each other mutually and help the audience realise their strength, value and the crucial role they have in the process.
