PLOT in Situ is an international festival of live art presenting site-specific works. We promote artist's works challenging their forms and concepts in different kinds of spaces creating a dialogue between work and space where both are questioned and reconstructed.
For the First edition of PLOT in Situ 2010 we choose the Theater Space as first approach to be worked by artists.
We choose artists working in different kinds of fields, inside the live art forms. Visual artists, theater directors, actors, performance artists were invited to produce a work inside of a theater.
Our aim is to create the possibility of affecting the space Theater, to challenge artists to re-create the notions of this same space, by working in it, using their own practices, taking advantage of its historical, formal, contextual, geographical or symbolic characteristics.
For this first time, PLOT in situ will work with artists from Greece, Japan, China, Canada, Germany, Israel, Spain and Portugal. This multicultural view of live art is one of the important values of this festival.
Each cultural background, each work field and each point of view of these artists will bring several different definitions and forms of the space “Theatre”.
