ieke Trinks: the Variety Show (2015), Titanik-gallery

During the festival in 2014, New Performance Turku has launched an audience outreach programme called “Audience as expert in performance and live art”. Audience outreach programme consists of afterwork discussions after artworks, seminars, and a special “godfather/mother spectator”-concept, which invites experts from different fields other than modern art to talk about the works from their own special perspective.

The festival focuses on promoting the discussion within performance and live art, and is constantly developing new methods and ways to open up the dialogue between performance and live art and its existing and new audiences.
