672 hours live process without intervals
16 February – 16 March 2018
Performistanbul artists will present a long durational live process to celebrate platform’s second anniversary and to highlight the Performistanbul Live Art Research Space. Entitled NEEDED: YOU the live process will take place in the building of the Research Space, which is under construction and will last for 28 days and 672 hours straight, with no intervals.
The aim is to reveal the raw material of humanity; to remind the most primitive feelings in us. We believe we can trigger transformation by a long durational work and that’s why we are presenting not a resolution but the process itself. Our objective is to have the audience involved in the process and live a mutually nourishing, pure experience. We would like the audience to enter the door unbiased; find a place of their own and feel valuable.
The performances invite 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 make the audience realise their strength, value and the crucial role they have in the process.
