The third edition of the project LIVE WORKS

practices that contribute to deepen and broaden 
the idea of performance, following the current 
evolution of performance and its styles.
This platform aims to measure the concreteness of 
performance art in the real world, investigating 
the double nature of LIVE - in person and alive - 
and highlighting those moments in which 
performance integrates with the dynamics of life.

Performance (FSP) and Centrale Fies Performance
