Performance, dance, music, theatre... For the 4th consecutive year, the DO DISTURB festival will electrify Palais de Tokyo.
This year, DO DISTURB takes the pulse of performance in cities around the world including Cape Town, in partnership with the A4 Arts Foundation, Los Angeles with the Human Resources art centre, London with the Hayward Gallery and The Store X The Vinyl Factory and São Paulo with the festival Verbo Performance Art Festival.
« Fatima Al-Banawi, Pia Camil, Gabrielle Goliath, Kubra Khademi, Louise Siffert, Jamila Johnson- Small: these are just some of the women artists present at Do Disturb this year. Their projects are very different from one another but all share a deep political and social engagement. Their propositions are rooted in both contemporary political contexts and a desire to use performance to better listen to and make heard the voices of the world so as to carve out paths for artistic transmission, irrespective of disciplinary categories; they aim to manifest a form of freedom that is perceptible to their audiences. » Vittoria Matarrese
DO DISTURB has previously had the honour of organizing the rst presentations in France of work by artists such
as Anne Imhof and Gerard&Kelly, with each edition of the festival creating links with cultural actors in France and abroad. This year, Palais de Tokyo continues to pursue its policy of extending invitations to prestigious institutions. The festival’s rst year saw partnerships with MoMA PS1, the Tate Modern and Matadero Madrid, the second edition welcomed research departments from French and European art and design schools, while last year’s instalment included collaborations with other international festivals such as TBA in Portland and Dias da Dança in Portugal.
