DISKURS considers itself as a platform for exchange, networking and artistic research. There will be a laboratory for artist collaboration; an internet radio will work towards DISKURS and accompany it during the festival. A retrospective will look back on previous DISKURS festivals. Yet again, the 25th DISKURS wants to trace and bring together new tendencies in the fields of performance, theatre, dance, music and installation.
The 090909 Upstage Festival aims to create a participatory space for collaboration, creation, and for the presentation of current cyberformance. The festival provides a platform (and shares the technichal expertise) to enable artists to experiment with the new medium, and to have their work seen alongside performances by internationally renowned practitioners - in a celebration of the evolution and diversity of cyberformance practices.
