Mamut Performances

ABOUT MAMUT PERFORMANCES

Through the last 3 years together, while developing our program, we’ve tried to give performance art the value and space it deserves by improving the program each year with its new concept and additions.

In 2016, we’ve had the chance to include performance arts in Mamut Art Project with our Performance Program, launched in collaboration with curators Simge Burhanoğlu and Seyhan Musaoğlu under the theme “Did you notice the performance?”. In the last 2 years, the program continued as Mamut Performances with the themes “How are you?” and “Immaterial” with a space of its own.

In the course of the past 3 years, with our experiences and dialogues with artists we’ve realized the constraints and need of spaces where performance art can be carried out. We’ve also been thrilled to see the growth of interest in the program from our visitors. These were few of the reasons that got us excited to move into a new direction in our program.

Parallel to this, we’ve opened the applications of our 2019 Performance Program to be curated by Mamut Art Project, without a theme and to a wider range of artists.

With various performances which will take place in the Mamut Perfomances 2019 Program the artists will invite you to play, explore, witness change, make a wish, dance and many more.
