Xing presents the third edition of Live Arts Week that will be held in Bologna, Italy, from 8th to 13th april 2014 at MAMbo - Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna, at the film archive Cineteca di Bologna/Cinema Lumière, and in the public library Biblioteca Salaborsa.
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, shows, environments, concerts, expanded cinema, film 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.
