PAB: OPEN Session

* Open Session (PAB OS) is a free and experimental art space, open to performers, artists and audience with an interest in Performance Art. PAB Open Session focuses mainly on performance in the public space, inspired by Bbeyond’s monthly meetings in Belfast. The concept is inclusive and open, so performance artists can have an arena to test new ideas and freely work with their intuition and with each other. We also aim to stimulate and promote exchange between improvisations from different fields and disciplines - artists, dancers, musicians, actors, vocalists and above all, those who cross all these art forms and have an interest to improvise interdisciplinary and interpersonal.

PAB OS /September Equinox, A Day of Public Actions for Freedom and Democracy

September 22th 2020, 18.00

Festplassen, Bergen

This project developed from the Bbeyond symposium, Being in Public, Encounters, Outside Space and Inner Space, April 2017 and was proposed by Chumpon Apisuk who stated that:“It is the day that all states must recognise and allow actions from the people which are ‘peaceful’ and ‘non-violent’. This day of action can be with or without context, but for the recognition of all people’s rights to share the public space together, in solidarity with each other, in respect of each others rights to share the same public space, as well as the time.”

Everyone is welcome to join, participating with performative actions or as spectator.

This event is also part of the celebration of Bergen 950år: https://www.bergen950.no/ka-skjer/KjsOReSP
