Series 3 | TanzFEED | "Performance as a Sanctuary"
Presented by glo & The Goat Farm Arts Center
"Performance as a Sanctuary"
Performers find salvation in the ability to create alternative sub systems to everyday life. They love experimenting in multiple identities and the ability to reinvent their hearts and minds in the eyes of others through cultural, social and gender bending work. They often converge in overlapping terrain as both insider/outsiders and rejoice in this paradoxical condition. Performance is a sanctuary for the contemporary artist, with bias toward action, the singular internal place, invented by each according to his or her aspirations and deepest spiritual needs.
The TanzFEED series provides spirited dialogue and debate between curators, writers and artists experimenting with new ideas and forms. These open discussions are shaped in response to a need for an intimate space in which meaningful dialogue can occur with the public. FEED is dedicated to revealing bridges between visual art practice and its resonance in contemporary performance and thought.
