Live Arts Week V. Bologna 15 + 19-23 April 2016

The fifth edition of Live Arts Week, conceived and created by Xing, will start with a prologue on 15th April with the new project of Mårten Spångberg & guests, and will continue in the week from 19th to 23rd april 2016 at MAMbo.
This event dedicated to live arts, unique in Italy, hosts a blend of new productions that revolve around the presence, performance and perceptual experience of sounds and visions.
Live Arts Week gives space to 'existential athletics'. It does not put art before the artists, but exposes to forms of sensitivity and ideas, welcomes hybrid and polyglot works, hosts creative singularity, weaving a sort of counter-design of use.
The program offers a calendar of live works (performances, environments, concerts, expanded cinema and live media with unique dates, productions and previews) presented by important personalities in the international and contemporary research scene.
For the fifth edition Xing assembled both groups of unmatched artists and solitary researchers.
Gianni Peng, a name that accompanies the festival in its organic growth, indicates the time of these transitions. It is a phenomenon, not a person: a new identity, unlikely but real, to be treated as an abstract concept.
