Join us for our Spring Equinox, Day of Public Actions for Freedom and Democracy. Everyone is welcome to join, participating with performative actions or with just watching.
Same Difference: Equinox to Equinox is a celebration of the generosity of spirit that artists can bring to life and marked a specific time and connectivity through Performance Art. The document explores the diverse conditions and nature of Performance Art in public space on a worldwide scale. An important aspect is that the project could only be realised with the very generous input for all the artists concerned, so this celebration marks the manifestation, from the thought to the action, the abstract to the concrete, in time, equal light/time zone, the Equinox.

It all started with an initiativ from the artist Chumpon Apisuk, and with the text: “It is the day that all states must recognise and allow actions from the people which are ‘peaceful’ and ‘non-violent’. This day of action can be with or without context, but for the recognition of all people’s rights to share the public space together, in solidarity with each other, in respect of each others rights to share the same public space, as well as the time.”

About Open Session:
Open Session or "PAB OS" is a free experimental art space which open to artists, performers and public who share our interest in Performance Art. It encourages the emergence of something new and inventive. The PAB OS has organized by Performance Art Bergen and take place in and around Bergen city since December 2012. We also aim to stimulate and foster exchange between improvisers from various fields and disciplines – artists, movers, musicians, actors, vocalists and above all those, who are crossing all the divisions and improvising interdisciplinary and inter-medially.
