Slow Down Winter Performance Festival presents original productions created by artists who explore the boundaries of performance. It is a festival for artists with a unique view on the world and for audiences unafraid of questioning their own perspectives. A selection of 9 international performance-artist is presenting art pieces which durational nature, giving the audience the freedom of time consumption.
Durational performance is a format in which the very agency of time is brought to the forefront. Repetition, contemplation or interactivity with the audience are integrated in a strategy that explore our understanding of the present.
The quiet nature of Amstelpark has been the drive that moved us to develop the concept for the festival, matching the artistic forms and the physical space under the constant questioning of our high-speed society.
