BIPF - Bergen International performance festival
- History Will Be Kind to Me for I Intend to Perform It

10-17th of September, two international performance art tours will meet in Bergen & at BIPF - Bergen international performance festival. Similar themes in both groups are how big, global societal trends affect local environment and sphere of the individual. The project "History Will Be Kind to Me for I Intend to Perform It" invites artists and theorists from African and Nordic countries to use performance as a means to deconstruct knowledge and examine the power relations of today. Can performative artistic processes challenge the dominating historical narratives? If the fixed history of the west used to be the reference to revisit and remember the past, now it is crucial to bring performance to the forefront of meaning making.
