exist-ence: an international festival of live art, performance art and action art Oct 13 – 16, 2011 @ Brisbane Powerhouse

Following the success of exist in 08, exist presents the fourth annual exist-ence festival, bringing the best, the bold and the brave to Brisbane Powerhouse and !Metro Arts.

Emerging, mid-career and established artists from across the city, nation and globe will gather in Brisbane exploring unknown terrain, unanswered questions and unresolved conversations.

Across four days these artists will carve a space for live art, action art and performance art into our city. Audiences are invited to take part by exploring our diverse program including performances, artist talks, films, networking events, forums and symposia.

“Simple materials, live art. Connecting audiences in and around Brisbane with contemporary live art practitioners in enthralling encounters, Exist in 08 was a resounding success.” RealTime Arts Magazine 88, 2008 – Danni Zuvella

“A new generation performs. Exist-ence is …an independent, accessible and welcome renewal of exploration and exposure to this artform in Queensland for another generation.” Doug Leonard. RealTime Arts Magazine 101, 2011
