The Neo-Domestic Performance Art Festival is a 100 hour durational performance dedicated to showcasing durational performances at the domestic sphere.
The festival, scheduled over 100 consecutive hours on June 21-25, 2017 will be showcasing durational performance works by 30+ artists, revealing the potential of the everyday environment as a stage for art.
The festival is intended to host original works that deal with core issues in performance, as well as some of the presentation modes explored over the past 10 years of Glasshouse including Homage Performance, 24h performance, One-To-One Performances and durational works.
NDPAF will be featuring works by local and international artists across disciplines, including visual art, theater, dance & literature. Performances will happen at Glasshouse (which blends the storefront gallery with an adjunct apartment both serving as an installation and stage).
**List of participating artists will be published in the coming days**
Performance is a discipline with transformative potential. When presented at a familiar, personal stage- a kitchen, a bed, a bath- the experience of both audience and artist becomes intimate and grotesque, tangible and claustrophobic. We are looking to expand that experience, stretch it over a hundred hours of hyper sensibility.
The Neo Domestic Performance Festival is expected to host audiences both locally via direct experience and internationally via live broadcasting, thus demonstrating the powerful potential of exchange based on the bridging of personal and public.
Glasshouse is the art-life-lab of artist Lital Dotan & photographer Eyal Perry, hosting artistic practices that are based on immersive performance & participatory art in the domestic sphere. Founded in 2007 and operating in Brooklyn since 2012 Glasshouse hosts performances, exhibitions, residency program and festivals, all dedicated to promote deeper understanding of performative practices and discourse.
The Neo-Domesticity Performance Art Festival is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
