Perforations 2012: Rijeka || Zagreb || Dubrovnik


time: 24.10.2012. - 31.10.2012.
place: Rijeka, Zagreb, Dubrovnik
organiser: Perforations
Perforations, festival of performing arts this year will also be held in three Croatian cities: Zagreb, Rijeka and Dubrovnik. In that way once again Croatian artists will represent some of the most significant performances in the field of performing arts which will be performed by influential companies and artist from the region, as well as by some new and promising artists.

Starting with the well-known collective BADco., with performance about terraforming, or a Slovenian artist who changed his name to the name of a right wing politician, further along with a not expected mixture from contortionism and butoh, or the theatrical homage to Herve Guilbert  – this festival holds strong to its mission of requestioning the borders of genres and disciplines.

The program consists also of the festivals traditional program segments – the night of performance, or the dinner with invasive species, as well as the always new ways of combining ecological topics with live arts – be it with musical protest against water politics or bicycle art – but always with the aim to honor the art of living with the live art. For this purpose, an exhibition of important figures of the regional performing scene by the artist Peggy Jarrell Kaplan will be held during the festival.

Perforations festival will be held from October 24 to 31, 2012., and during the dates in Zagreb (25th to 28th of October) in coorganisation with Domino the plenary session of IETM  takes place – the organisation whose membership consists of over 500 organisations from 45 different countries.
