Opening of the festival Saturday 28 May at 11 am by Mayor Joy Mogensen
As a new initiative The Museum of Contemporary Art presents a new annual event named ACTS – Festival for Performative Arts which will take place in and around the museum as well as in the citycenter of Roskilde. This year the festival takes place the weekend of 28 – 29 May. ACTS takes its point of departure in international tendencies in the upcoming as well as the established sound and performance art scene offering concerts, performances, sound walks and workshops for the whole family.
ACTS – Festival for Performative Art presents ephemeral art forms taking place ”here and now”, and which in a humorous, critical or sensual way relates to the world, we live in. The works will titillate the audience’s curiosity, speaking to both visual, auditory and taste senses, and shake firmly held notions about life and art. With the festival’s focus on the performative art, we put presence, interaction and sensory perception at the very centre of a new festival that both engages and challenges its audience.
