Venice International Performance Art Week
Fragile Body – Material Body
The III VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK took place at European Cultural Centre | Palazzo Mora and Palazzo Michiel in Venice, December 10-17, 2016 under the focus Fragile Body – Material Body. It concluded the trilogy project following the first two editions Hybrid Body – Poetic Body and Ritual Body – Political Body that took place in December 2012 (Palazzo Bembo), and in December 2014 (Palazzo Mora and Palazzo Michiel).
We followed the entire event, filming the live program and producing daily video documentation of the program. Sharing a new video each morning after the events dictated a very fast and compelling workflow, which hopefully achieves the goal of capturing the vibes of those extraordinary days.
