The legendary performance event returns for its 4th installment and promises an exciting and provocative collection of performers from all over the world. OnĀ July 27th from 5pm- 10pmĀ artists working in the field of performance and action art will descend upon the pedestrian only streets of Chung King Road for a free and one night only experience featuring more than 25 different live artworks from Thailand, Northern Ireland, Chile, Canada, Massachusetts, Iowa and a large contingent of participants from Southern California.

 

Works will vary greatly in style, cultural and sociological influence, ranging from the radical street interventions of the anarchist Thai painter Vasan Sitthiket, to the body- driven works by the iconic Sheree Rose, to the beautifully moving performance installations by native Peruvian, Mariel Carranza. Chung King Road will be lined with large boxes in which several artists will present long-term “durational” performance installations that will morph in aesthetic and meaning throughout the entire course of the event, while other performances will happen as roving works or pop-ups in various locations throughout the area.
