This autumn, PREStival makes its inaugural debut as the smallest contemporary performance festival on the planet. For two days only, the Artistic Residents of PReS (Postgraduate Residency Studios) invite audiences near and far to share the culmination of their year-long research in performance practice. This is a celebration of the ephemerality of embodied art, action and interaction, performance and installation. It is an opportunity to witness, share, and discover new approaches to performance-making from a group of female Artists with wideranging backgrounds.
PReStival is created to give artists a platform for new material and experimentation in a performance setting. It will be inquisitive, sensitive, risky, radical, awkward, and new. Presented in the Halle 2, audiences get an inside view on the rigours of performance practice, from the inception of an idea to the dissemination of a work. Explore the space, engage in conversation, and celebrate the final chapter of PReS’s first year!
