Willem Wilhelmus

Willem has been living and working in Helsinki since 1994. In 1999 he orientated his work solely to performance art. He combines both the creation and the organization of performance events such as the Fake Finn Festival of experimental live art, La Contact, New Art Contact, Art Contact and Kaapo Hintikka, all of them in Helsinki.

For P.S. Performance Art Festival The Hague, he will be in Holland for one weekend. You can learn more about the festival at https;//performancesite.wordpress.com or facebook: P.S.

The workshop on sunday will be about performance art related to space.
Context: The space determines a big part of the final performance. How to deal with it as a performance artist? Where does the performer place his public in the room, opposite his performance? What kind of significance has the space in the performance, is it secondary or defining. How can space be used as an advantage in the performance and can you make it into the topic of the performance? Does the performer fit in with his environment or is he in advance looking for spots that are interesting to use in the performance?
