is an experimental platform for Performance art based in Berlin.
Conceived as a laboratory, our goal is to break down barriers and experiment between different artistic genres.
Collaboration is the centre of our experimentation. Our activity consists in discuss, hear, propose, exchange and dialogue.. Using an abstract and multimediallanguage our works are trying to reflect on life and society with a humorous approach. By making the absurdity and confusion of reality visible, we try to communicate and interact with the public directly, loosing the limits between audience and performer.




Poul R. Weile (Denmark)




"The Idea chooses the Material - not the other way around".
"Art is a way to de-construct Arts own image".
"When everything in Society is defined - the left-over is ART."
"Art is the only drug that is still permitted in our society"



Travis McCoy Fuller (USA)

Travis McCoy Fuller is concerned with the multiplicity of layers within his performance practice. These layers operate on many levels, visual, spatial, emotional, psychological, social, etc.. His performances are an experience of a non-linear cultivation of layers, which then, through subjective decoding, create meaning. He is interested in playing with the boundaries between the performer and the viewer. The notion of control enters his work through the process of soliciting volunteers and delegating them tasks. The content of his actions deal with complex and troubling subject matter while avoiding pathos and rhetoric.



Lars Crosby (Germany)

my way ... as an autodidactic artist in the Art-For-Free metropolis of Berlin is an extremely rocky one ... it may rock - and it may flow as gently and nearly amorphously as a warmed crystal flowing through each cell - stimulating the pulsing of the blood -and yet, at the same time, reflecting and cooling at the window of the essence of my nature




SP 38 (France)

Amy J.Klement (USA)

In her work as a performer, what fascinates Amy J. Klement (born in the US in 1968, has lived and worked in Berlin since 1997) are the following: the shells, nets, and networks that we create and those that surround us. Her social sculptures and performances reflect the metamorphoses of symbols and myths, of materials, and of language and appearances.

In recent years, her performances have been presented at various festivals and exhibitions in Germany, Poland, Spain, Estonia, Finland, the United States, and Kanada. She is also the founder of the 'Kraft durch Häkeln' (Strength through Crochet) anarchic crochet circle and a member of the Open Space Performunion.

Do you love your work? Should artists love their work?
What questions should one address? What is a performance artist?

Well, lets ask instead what the others are doing, that is to say, those who are not performing.
Who is our public? Many carry constantly a Kino with them in the form of a laptop or cell phone and disappear into the world of their movie. Others are observing acutely the details of the Movie around them.
When we are not performing our public roles, our public character,
when we take off the masks, who are we? Is that the moment in which we begin?
"I always begin with questions, because I have no answers." Julian Beck
Again and again, we excercise the necessity of attempting to "appear" in public space,
and to give evidence to the collective spirit, to give visible form to the experience stored in the cells of the collective body. -and to ask the signifigant questions.

"interesting is, that which is uncomfortable." Gennadi Bogdanov
There is a constant renewal of the necessity of Art. This is not a question for me.

Andreas Stadler (Germany)

Seit 2000 betätige ich mich als Schauspieler und Performance Künstler. Zur Zeit lebe und arbeite ich in Berlin.
In der Performance Art erlebe ich eine große Freiheit, ohne mich verbiegen zu müssen. Die Vielseitigkeit einer Performance ist einfach großartig und immer wieder eine neue Begegnung mit mir.
Gerne mache ich auch Theater. Eine Figur auf der Bühne zu sein mit deren Konflikten und Entwicklungen ist für mich sehr Interessant. Es bringt mir viel auseinander Setzung mit mir selbst.
Kunst darf aber auch Spaß machen.



Albrecht Fersch (Germany)

It Remains the Way it Shall Be




Amber Lee (USA)

"Our Father who art in nature, who has given the gift of survival to the coyote, the common brown rat, the English sparrow, the house fly and the moth, must have a great and overwhelming love for no-goods and blots-on-the-town and bums, and Mack and the boys. Virtues and graces and laziness and zest. Our Father who art in nature." - John Steinbeck


Amber Lee creates performances based on natural elements. Voice, touch, witchcraft, science, all of these take a part in performances designed to make the audience into performers and performers feel the collectivity of being human.



Camilla Gaugler (Denmark)

The artist who inspires me the most is Marina Abramovic
Again and again she makes visible, what normaly only can be sensed. All the invisible stoff between people and between people and objects, is present in her work.
I use her in my teaching, and now she is almost physically present in my performance Rain, Gold and Worm.



Tupada Action and Media Art (Philippines)
Mannet L.Villariba, Thom Daquioag, Sam Panaso, Rogger Basco, Martin de Mesa und Vim Nadera



TUPADA is a prohibited cockfight; a cultural Filipino pastime influenced by the Spaniards during colonial rule. As cockfights in 17th century Philippines were permitted only during Sundays and feast days, TUPADAs were held on the sly and on short notice, where competitors and audiences, even from neighboring towns, assembled in the middle of roads or public spaces to watch and bet on the cockfight, then quickly disperse right after the bloody bouts.

This Filipino passion for spontaneous spectacles is the concept behind TUPADA-ambush, live performances that attempt to artistically interpret, express and convey a broad spectrum of concepts and truths to the masses, with the artist's body, space, time, circumstances, audience, site-specific elements and more as both the medium and the subject.

Over the years, TUPADA has set venues for these instantaneous and independent performances, which has enticed and encouraged local artists from various disciplines-academe, research, design, social and community work, film, literature, dance, theatre, music and visual arts-to explore performance art as a less restrictive and more inclusive form of creative expression.

TUPADA ACTION AND MEDIA ART is constantly seeking ways to advocate the practice and execution of performance art in the Philippines, embodying the truly Filipino ideal of expression without boundaries, and educating the masses who witness and take part in international caliber live public art.



The Physical Poets (Japan)
Mushimaru Fujieda Iori Kinki, Yuka Bouuchi, Miyakochocho chocho Takatani, Hide Yidaki, Himeko Narumi und Sakimi Mochiduki


A composite art group of dancers, musicians and artists gathered together in 2000 around the dancer-choreographer-director Mushimaru Fujieda. The group, the Physical Poets is comprised by two subgroups within the ensemble; the male group "ALAKAN" and the female group "Sakiminohime". This group has its uniquity in that it has amalgamated all traditional dance forms in existence in Japan to this day together with the world famed contemporary "Butoh".

Considering that human spirit and body constitute an inseparable entity, the group has based its dance techniques upon control utilizing the breathing methods for the training of Yoga, Qigong and Zen of the traditional Asian cultures. Backed with live music performances incorporating ethnic instruments, the Physical Poets´theatrical expression-full of origionality, so beautiful and mystic that one may perhaps be reminded of surrealistic painting-contnues to receive acclaim and support from large audiences across borders.




Joakim Stampe (Sweden)


Joakim Stampe has over 25 years experience as an international and certified Cut Guide, and has made cuts in almost 20 countries where he, with various materials, created both beautiful and ugly cuts or for that matter, healed some cuts. Both of the works by Joakim Stampe will show where there are almost invisible cuts that surrounds us,
and with his performance actions, not only assembles or demonstrates their existence, but also, for a few ephemeral moments allow us to encounter these cuts or images.

The most common, stable, and reliable states of the Universe are the qualities of darkness and cold. We live in a very unusual condition of relative warmth and light. We are living here (earth) Mhumans, spiders, grass, fish, carrots,
bacteria, mice, viruses. We are all related. We need to eat each other. It is the price of peace, beauty, security, humor, love, and hope. Our bodies, like those of all other organisms here, are communities of cells working together essentially for their own preservation. We will all become food for something someday. The sun will make our place food for itself someday. I do not know what will eat the sun. Then it will likely become cold and dark. I take comfort in this. I like natural states.

American identity, obsessed with freedom, democracy, religion and guns is rife with contradictions. Americans are fiercely independent, emphasizing individual responsibility, yet we happily live with the influences of advertising and large corporate entities, which take advantage of our complacency for their own advancement. I have a fascination with these contradictions and the warped, distorted and broken mirrors that America, as a she, uses to gaze at herself. I also believe that the personal is political, and I create fiercely personal works to strengthen our understanding of each other.

Moran Sanderovich (Israel)

I am generally interested in the creation of alternative bodies - those unaware of the terms "disability" and "imperfection". I am looking for modern mythological creatures that tell their own story. To create these alternative beings, I elaborate my costumes, which constitute the core of my work. They affect the movement of my body, bring along physical changes, which have an impact on the choreography of my movements. For me, as the performer, the piece is something similar to a trance, in which I become the ugly, the deformed, crossing my own boundaries. Within my body a struggle begins between characters. This body is rather unsightly, maybe repulsive, but allows feelings to become visible without the filter of aesthetics. Each time the outcome is unknown.
I was inspired by dances of indigenous peoples, in which the performers dress like monsters to confront the audience with their fears, but also to make themselves familiar with them. I want to create a space, in which passions, fears and weaknesses do not have to be hidden.

Aurélie Pertusot (France)

"En ligne/On-line"

During the "En ligne" (On-line) performance, the artist plants a nail in the wall in every entrance of visitors to the room. From the shadow of these nails forms a line seeming really drawn on the wall. More there is visitors and comings and goings, more the line becomes visible and lengthens, the flow of the public make it appear in a more or less rhythm way. Its shape and its intensity vary gradually according to the location of the light source.
This interactive performance questions the visibility of a work in every sense of the word and evoke among others PageRank of the network. By definition, a performance affect the reality, here it's the reality (the visitor) which influences and has some control over the performance.

Born in 1983 in France, Aurélie Pertusot is a visual artist who has been developing
her work focused on drawing and disappearance and is interested in art in the public space.
Through ephemeral interventions, site-specific installations and performances, she seeks to establish a dialogue with the space, as well as between the public and the work. Working with an economy of means, with the imperceptible and the invisible, she tries to give form to virtuality by privileging the use of "low technology".




Myk Henry (USA)

Myk Henry was born in Dublin, Ireland and moved to New York in 1984. From 1989-1992 he became a key figure in the organization of several large scale warehouse art events along the Brooklyn waterfront. In 1994 he moved to Geneva, Switzerland where he graduated in 2001 with both a BFA and MFA at Ecole Supérieure des Arts Visuels. Henry works with new media installation, sound sculpture, video and performance. As a performer he exploits the audience's sense of awareness and engages them in a transformative process. Investigating the thin divide between private and public space, his work is provocative, edgy and slams the viewer into the center of political issues, social conditioning and human taboos.

Culture Ireland awards Henry travel grants, which enables him to build sculptures and make performances around the world. He has shown work at ARCO in Madrid, UNHCR in Geneva, the Museum of Art and History in Geneva, the Ludwig Museum in Budapest, the World Expo in Shanghai, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Vaasa (Finland), Fountain, Miami Basel and the Armory Show in New York. He won "La Bourse Federal", (Young Art Basel, Switzerland), Le prix Contonal Geneva (Switzerland) and was the first foreigner to win Le Prix Providencia, (Swizerland).




Tizo All (Brazil)

DAS, is a neutral name for "existing", examining the personal pronoun, we can define it as that which is in between "the weakness of gender or the overcoming of it." This is not a story, it is a sequence of events connected by the absurd -poetry- between a fissure of the senses in reality, moments of suspension. -imaginary figures -a cut in reality.

Nameless, one day walking down the street of any city, I saw a person, I know it was a person, she had arms, legs, neck, hands, chest, and she had a face, (she did not have a face), but she had a face, but it was nameless.

How to explain (to myself) what performance art is and don't die in the attempt

We don't have a single definitive answer to the question 'What is performance?' There is an answer for each performer and they are all provisional.
This is mine.

Painting, sculpture, photography, music, dance, video, cinema, theatre, sport, mime, cuisine… All this is not performance. Performance is the alchemy of all these mediums and more.
I consider the practice of performance as the act of breathing. By this I mean that performance is a vital necessity.
Performance is the drive to cause moments from our experiences and unresolved unachieved desires to come to the surface. Some of these events go back to our childhood, others are from the present. We couldn't exactly say what they are about. These experiences leave their traces, from which we just perceive emotion.
Every performance tells us of the performer, of her/his perception and interpretation of the world. In this sense performance is autobiographical.

- Performance is one of the activities that we, as humans, develop over the course of our lives
- - Performance is the organism (self)generating reality
- - Performance is action incarnate
- - Performance is knowledge
- - Performance is a critique of representation
- - Performance is interaction
- - Performance is to make evident the inevident
- - Performance is construction of meaning
- - Performance is the inability to communicate
- - Performance is the need to share
- - Performance is…

Open Space Performunion (Germany)

"The Field of Freedom is Shrinking and Freedom Needs a Field" Paul Virillo

The Open Space Performunion was founded by Michael Steger in 2005 in response to an invitation to tour as a performance group at the Diverse Universe Festival, organized by NON GRATA in Estonia. A steadfast ensemble had already been creating diverse performance events together in different constellations within the circles of Open Space, which was founded in 1998 with the aim of collectively transforming any time and space; the public space, the museum, commercial space, and theatre space into real time live art happening. The process of becoming a performance art collective was a simple and organic response to that which was already existent in the Open Space artistic community, for the interest and feeling of necessity for expressing ourselves through the medium of Performance Art had united us.

The members of this nomadically changing group, (Philip Brehse, Lars Crosby, Amy J. Klement, Alfredo Sciuto, Luz Scherwinski, Andreas Stadler, Michael Steger, as well as short termed collaborators, Berlin based and also International Performance artists such as Kim Baek-ki, Franziska Bosse, Im Malys, Jessica Slote and Nicholas Vargelis, to name a few), are rather extreme in their differences, backgrounds and approaches to performance, and that is possibly the essence of what is unique about us, and that which keeps our works fresh and unexpected. The Performunion has performed at numerous locations in Berlin, (Theatres, Galleries, shopping malls, clubs, U and S-Bahn, parks, nomans land, beaches and in street intersections), and toured abroad extensively at International Festivals in Estonia, Finland, Denmark, France, Italy, South Korea, Toronto, Canada and N.Y.C.

Sukjin Kim (South Korea)

My central theme of "Creative Beauty of Life and Art" is that I am first and foremost an artist, and then a woman.
The Idea in the artist's mind mirrors the child in the womb: desiring to be nourished, to grow and finally be given a life of its own.
I consider the cutting of the umbilical chord between the newborn child and mother, to be a mirror of the cut between an artist and their finished work, in that it now has a life of its own in the minds of those who experience it.
Music: Roddy Skeaping



Lick me Happy (Germany)

Michael Philips & Tobias Möhring

"Lick me Happy" has been creating performances since 2002 using a mixture of
bizarre and absurd theatre elements juxtaposed by statements as to political issues, mostly from a genderqueer perspective. Their performances target issues such as gentrification, and productivity pressures, (also in alternative structures), ....... mostly with the aim of challenging the audience into questioning how much they themselves are part of these problems .......
Their actual performance "Monster" addresses the difficult relationships between monsters and human beings.
