What is this project all about?

Pertanzform is an idea of the choreographer Alessio Trevisani, conceived as a presentation space, a performative gallery and a thematic platform for visual arts, dance and theater. The project is an open space for exhibitionism. The first edition will take place March 2018 1st and 2nd for 6 hours ACTION in Berlin Wedding. Pertanzform will require at least 8 editions. 8 project topics elaborated under different forms and different disciplines, from the fine arts, music and performing arts to literature.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

The aim of the project is to conduct a visible thematic performative dialogue in Berlin, at which known, and not yet well-known performance artists can find a stage for performances and body installations and an appropriate space outside the institutional places in Berlin.
It is a unique opportunity to have such a variety of artists working on a common theme together, each bringing its own cultural and artistic background.

Why would you support this project?

The motivation relies on a shared vision of the Gesamtkunstwerk, as if it were in the spirit of Joseph Beuys: "Only when we are together can we transcend our borders and make the seemingly impossible possible as pure enthusiasm."
This is also the strength and fragility of the project, and therefore its beauty: it is a multicultural, international project in which people work and perform with heart and sweat.
For the first edition of the festival, we are running without any institutional support - besides our logistical partner TanzRaum Berlin.
That's why we need your help to create a beautiful first edition of this event, as a strong base for the future ones!

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
