The word territory is since the appearance of life on the globe connected with defending or conquering and enters directly an existential question of everybody’s life. In times of globalization where immigration and emigration are the challenging topics of modern societies, territories are even stronger connected with the aspect of identification and the search for a new identity.


This search for biographical positions, family trees, memorable places and an own imprint in the land under the feet is not only a matter of geographical areas anymore, but a historical and cultural issue. It has never been this easy to change places in the world, but to find yourself in it, has never been that challenging and intimate before.



Art is a territory by itself, moving and expanding in many directions. It also tries to conquer, to discover, even to defend and all this in order to create space for a personal imprint and landmarks. If we understand how to strengthen this sense of polyterritoriality in art, we open a fruitful and intense dialogue with art forms, artistic articulations and as well other non-artistic areas, to set another landmark which belongs to us, as individual travelers and sailors.





With the guidance and direction of the facilitators, participants used a variety of techniques and exercises to focus perception of one’s own personality, developed skills to communicate with the body, and transform ideas into a performative work. Personal perception and experienced color characterize how we communicate and deal with the body in time and space during performance.


The main objective is to understand the body as a tool and to use this tool to communicate effectively in performance. Investigated and worked with a variety of performative exercises in various conditions, in- and outdoor which focused on: body, time, space, concentration, endurance (both in groups and individually) and images.




“There is not one way of doing performance art, but many.”
