Timmy De Laet & Katleen Van Langendonck
Performance Art and Technology
Performance past and present
If you would like to learn more about performance art before you venture into the Performatik festival, you can take our four-part course entitled What is Performance Art? On the usefulness or pointlessness of the collective term ‘performance’. On performance past and present, in art and the performing arts. In each part we examine performance from a different angle, after which you will watch a performance (in a theatre or museum) that touches on the theme. On each occasion Katleen Van Langendonck, Kaaitheater’s programmer and the curator of Performatik, and a different specialist will guide you through the performance art landscape in words and images.
