Plot in Situ

Performance art event

Organized by Hotel 25 with the collaboration of ACUD Theater, PLOT in Situ is an international festival of live art presenting site-specific works. We promote artists 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.

The term site-specific starts when artists took the sculpture out of the gallery to the public space. Their aim was to provoke the public space. At the same time that they were re-constructing the space and the quotidian of the people that were passing by, they were re-thinking as well the institutionalization of the art structures.
