Performensk is the first edition of the festival which will present different kinds of performative art, especially performance art, alternative theatre and sound art. The festival will take place between 29.6.-1.7.2018 in Minsk, Republic of Belarus. The theme of the festival’s first edition is OPENING (projects addressing the topic will be prioritized). We want to introduce the opening theme through the contents of selected projects as well as through multigenre focus of the festival. Our aim is to bring to Belarus contemporary young artists who will present various approaches to art creation to the Belarusian public.
