Needed: You 672 hours live process, 2018
Curated by Simge Burhanoğlu
The platform took the first step toward a new phase by presenting NEEDED: YOU, a long durational live process that was last for 28 days, 672 hours straight with no intervals, ıt was 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.
The aim was to reveal the raw material of humanity; to remind the most primitive feelings in us. A long durational work had the power to trigger the transformation needed, and that’s why Needed: You presents the process itself instead of offering a resolution. The aim behind this objective is to had the audience involved in the process and to present a mutually nourishing, pure experience. The audience is expected to enter the door unbiased; find a place of their own and feel valuable.
