10:00 – 12:00
Bíó Paradís, Hverfisgata 54
The Mellemrum walks invite audiences to experiences a specific area from new angles. Moving through known and unknown places to a number of site-specific performances and interventions, the audiences are offered the chance to experience everyday surroundings through a performative lens – to rediscover the extraordinary in the ordinary.
All projects are created through a close dialogue between the residents and artists (local as well as national/international), thus the element of community/participatory work is prominent.
Mellemrum has already visited 14 locations around Europe and Asia. For the moment Tainan, Seoul, Freiburg and Graz are in the molding box.
