Performing arts festival at Milan’s PAC

1-3 Mar. In the Milan Pavilion of Contemporary Art.

Three days of meetings, flash-backs, screenings and performances, all open free to the public with artists, curators, critics and academics at the PAC – Padiglione di Arte Contemporanea in Via Palestro, Milan.

The festival will follow the format of the 2017 model, when a festival dedicated to the restoration and conservation of street art met with encouraging approval from the public.

This year’s programme centres on the human body and its interaction with its surrounding space.  The events inspired by this theme will explore the role of the artist in performing arts and the evolution of the institutions which support their work.

Live performances by artists like Dora Garcia and Paulien Oltheten and dancers like Annamaria Ajmone and Cristina Kristal Rizzo will be open free of charge. Among the international experts leading discussions and workshops will be Susanne Franco, professor of the history of dance and theatre at Venice’s Università Ca’ Foscari, Lois Kaidan, director of the Live Art Development Agency in London, and André Lepecki, head of the performance studies department at Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.

PAC will be open on Thursday and Friday 18.00 – 22.30 and Saturday 17.00 – 02.00. Entry free except for Saturday from 21.30, when entry will cost €15 (tickets at Mailticket).
