performingborders present a day of performance, talks, food and provocations focusing on how we can work together in creating joint borderless, anti-racist, non-binary, feminist, non-ableist spaces.

After a series of pilot events across England and Nogales(US/Mexico border), the first performingborders | concludes with a day of performance, talks, food and provocations.

Curated by Alessandra Cianetti and Xavier de Sousa, and starting from the cue ‘Curating Borderless Spaces’, the day will focus on highlighting and platforming urgent voices and discourses within the Live Art sector on how we can work together in creating collaborative borderless, anti-racist, non-binary, feminist, non-ableist, post-colonial spaces.

Kicking off the day with a keynote by interdisciplinary artist, educator, and activist Raju Rage, the event will see the premiere of commissioned performances-to-camera by Istanbul Queer Arts Collective and Tara Fatehi Irani, along with new digital conversations on Live Art and borders by Burong and Critical Interruptions (Bojana Janković and Diana Damian Martin). Everyone is invited to participate in a communal live group conversation dotted by the interventions and provocations of guest artists  Bojana Janković, Marikiscrycrycry, Dana Olărescu, Kai Syng Tan and Helena Walsh

Writer in Residence Season Butler will respond to the discussions and exchanges of the day through live writing and she will close the event with a performative response to the day’s proceedings.

Curating Borderless Spaces is part of Antiuniveristy 2019

A vegan lunch (with no nuts) will be offered to everyone including a selection of drinks.*
