The horse will make you happy

IPA Summer 2013

 Workshops, Platform for Young Performance Artists and Conference about teaching Performance Art

August 11th – August 25th 2013 in Istanbul

The IPA Summer 2012 ...

... in Istanbul was extremely successful. It was organized by the new departement of IPA, IPA Istanbul, with the main partner, Koza Visual Culture and Arts Association. Istanbul is a great place for Performance Art, we experienced a warm welcome and support - from the organizers, from the partners, and, for some surprising, from the audience in the streets. So we will continue this experience in 2013.

Our teachers in 2013 are:
- Agnes Nedregard (Norway)
- Verena Stenke (Germany) and Andrea Pagnes (Italy)
- Jürgen Fritz (Germany)

Don´t miss to apply! We can offer limited places for 40 participants. Last year more than 150 young artists applied, this year it will be the same.

So – if you would like to to take part– apply now!
