Revolve Performance Art Days Uppsala 6-14 May 2016


Revolve Performance Art Days is a new festival for performance art in Uppsala with a focus on the genre’s specific power to act in the here a now. The festival aims at gathering and presenting a richness of expressions and artistic strategies dealing with the ephemeral nature of performance, while having the capacity to challenge, enrich and contradict each other. 14 internationally active artists and groups have been invited to participate, with the festival taking place in a variety of settings. Revolve highlights performance art that courageously and playfully challenges its own medium and politics. The program is multifaceted and discusses what it means to be human from a social and existential angle.
