KICKSTART for TEOREMI – Performance Art Festival

Kickstart the TEOREMI Performance Art Festival here http://kck.st/1fLSNcd (deadline 1 May 2014 at midnight)

The Contemporary Art Museum of Genoa, Villa Croce, on Thursday 12, Friday 13, and Saturday 14 June 2014 will host TEOREMIthe first Italian performance festival aimed at fighting against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Teoremi festival invites guests, performers, and spectators to an interactive moment of reflection around discrimination within the Italian territory, specifically focusing on the homophobic and transphobic behaviours that haunt the country.

Inspired by Pier Paolo Pasolini’s film Teorema, the festival’s title refers to the possibility of reformulating those behavioural and ethical postulates the “theorems”, which unfortunately, in Italy, still connect factors of culture and “traditional values” to continuous discrimination within its own community. The festival also finds itself in a relevant historical and social time, since it contributes to promoting visibility and respect of LGBT rights around the world.

The 17th of May is also the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) and during the month of June, popular “Pride” events are held globally (The next Pride in Rome will take place on the 7th June 2014).

During three days of performance, the festival will showcase the works of artists whose productions reflect these problematic matters from an Italian perspective: a video work by canecapovolto and performances by Tiziana Contino, exvUoto teatro, Hard-Ton & Gaia Brigida, Kyrahm & Julius Kaiser, Ruben Montini & Alexander Pohnert, Mona Lisa Tina.

Teoremi festival is an initiative founded by Roberta Orlando, visual artist and gender studies researcher, and Giulia Casalini, curator and founder of the Archivio Queer Italia project, in collaboration with CUNTemporary (non-profit organisation based in London).

The festival aims at becoming a regular appointment during the summer period, touring around Italy year after year and showcasing new artists and theorists.
