Bbeyond Belfast 2010 CHAOS
CHAOS: the complexity of causality or relationships between events. Any 'seemingly' insignificant event in the universe has the potential to trigger a chain reaction that will change the whole system.
BBEYOND PRESENTS ‘CHAOS’, A WEEK OF LIVE ART FROM A SPECIAL SELECTION OF CANADIAN ARTISTS. THIS EXCITING EVENT IS THE FIRST IN A PROGRAM THAT CURATES CUTTING EDGE PERFORMANCE ART FROM VANCOUVER, TORONTO AND MONTREAL.
THE EVENTS TAKE PLACE IN NOT-FOR-PROFIT ART SPACES IN BELFAST AND RUNS FROM THE 8TH - 13TH OF FEBRUARY 2010. AUDIENCES WILL HAVE A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO OBSERVE AND PARTICIPATE IN NEW APPROACHES THAT RE-CONSIDER THE ROLE OF PERFORMANCE ART IN BELFAST AND BEYOND.
