FADO Performance Art Centre is pleased to present an evening of new solo performance works from Alice De Visscher (Belgium) and Simla Civelek (Turkey / Toronto).
This event invites a local artist and an international artist to present new solo performance works created for the same space on the same evening. The artists and the audience come together to experience side by side the work of peers from different parts of the world. Each artist will present two short works in alternating sequence.

Real to Reel
As an immaterial practice, performance art’s relationship to archive has always been a fraught one. Using their own documentation from the FADO archive, these five artists activate and challenge the linear narrative of the archive by creating new video works inspired by (or even using) their own documentation material.
