Performance Week 3rd—10th of August 2013

“The End of World – Or Why the World Won’t End”

The main performance events will take place on Wednesday the 7th of August in the Platform studio on Kasern 14 in Vaasa starting at 3 pm.

The events will be based on this years Platform theme “The End of World – Or Why the World Won’t End”. A theme that was selected shortly before the ending of the Maya calendar. Out of a western perspective, in today’s information society, news reach us from all over the world, about climatological threats and environmental disasters and also there is a growing awareness, about the earths limited resources – all factors that make the future seem more uncertain than ever; Is this the beginning of the end? On the other hand, the things that seem the furthest apart, perhaps even opposites, may actually lay close together. ‘The end’ and ‘the beginning’ could be seen simply as two points on the same line, or even in the same circle…
