Riga Performance Festival: Starptelpa is focused on performance art as a sovereign form of art in contemporary context.
By definition performance art is an intermedial form of art. It means that there are no strict boundaries among the involved media and art disciplines. It is a hybrid phenomenon in the arts discourse allowing several arts to co-exist in parallel (visual arts, physical theatre, dance, media art, installation, etc.), thus creating an ambiguous in-between space or liminal space. In this space paratheatrical, sound and/or art practices, when freed from standards and traditions, can develop new, experimental and previously unprecedented artistic forms. The most crucial media of performance art – the presence of the artist, the body, time and duration, space, relationship with the spectators – may be combined with music, philosophy, poetry, sculpture, dance, cinematography, sculptural objects/installations, as well as non-art, for example, everyday objects, equipment and tools.
The theme of this year’s festival is “The Phenomenon of Control”.
