The M:ST Performative Art Festival and Society exists to encourage the development of performative art practice in Southern Alberta with our original publications, professional development opportunities, and biennial festivals.
M:ST 9 Performance Art Biennial
September 7 – October 7, 2018
M:ST 9 Biennial brings Canadian and international performance artists to Calgary for a month-long festival celebrating experimental and risk-taking artworks that disrupt conventions: We are an incubator for artworks that don’t behave! In this biennial we investigate: the limits of our freedom – both as individuals and as citizens, the edges of borders – both real and imagined, and our collective connectivity– both voluntary and involuntary.
Visitors to Southern Alberta consistently remark on the willingness of this region’s artists and arts organizations to work together. The tendency towards collaboration and cooperation is a unique and noteworthy feature of this community.
