PERF (Ré)agir / (Re)act


AXENÉO7 launches the third edition of the PERF biennal

On September 22, 2021 at 6PM, AXENÉO7 will open its doors for Soirée #1 of the performance biennial PERF (Ré)agir / (Re)act. The centre will welcome the public for a series of performances and interventions, from September 22 to October 23, 2021.


For the third edition of PERF, entitled (Ré)agir) / (Re)act, AXENÉO7 focused on the notion of the encounter by bringing together projects from a variety of different disciplines including a section dedicated to writings about performance which will be presented in salle Jean-Pierre Latour. 

For the biennial, two evenings of performance will be curated by AXENÉO7 and two evenings by Fait Maison (Thomas Grondin and Anna Khimasia), who were invited to participate in a curatorial residency at the centre. Fait Maison will be organizing two events: De l'autre côté du miroir / Through the Looking Glass and a performative Afternoon Tea. To close the biennial, AXENÉO7 will present a series of three daily performances of the Dream Room, a dance project by Compagnie Katie Ward, presented simultaneously and in collaboration with the Beeldend Danstheater Telder. 

PERF (Ré)agir / (Re)act is presented in collaboration with the Centre de production DAÏMÔN, Radio-Hull, Fait Maison, Coopérative de solidarité Les artistes du Ruisseau, L’Entre-deux, Compagnie Katie Ward and Beeldend Danstheater Telder.
