The first PORT PERFORMANCE ART WORKSHOP took place in Gdańsk in Poland in August 2006. The second was realized in Tallinn and Pärnu in Estonia in January 2007 (documentations of these workshops you can find on our homepage www.portperformance.net).

The third workshop we offer in our home port in Poland. The two cities at the baltic sea connects an interesting duality. Gdańsk with its traditional and historical meanings on the one side and on the other side Gdynia as a young and dynamic community. Two towns, two faces. But both base their existence on the relation to the sea with ports, ships, shipyards and fishings. An interesting field for our performative researches between contrast and balance.

The workshop will be given by the international Performance-artists and –teachers Angelika Fojtuch and BBB Johannes Deimling. The aim of the workshop is to work out an Art-Performance and its final public presentation. We will realize specifical excercises that will help to transform own ideas into a performative work. The center of the workshop focuses the perception of the own personality and the communication with the body. Own perception and selfexperiences characterize the feeling in dealing with body, time and space in performance art as well as in ordinary communication. To understand his body as a tool and to use this tool in his own communications is the main value of this workshop. Besides this artistical offer we give some cultural specials.


PORT PERFORMANCE is a forum for Performance Art that wants to mediate the experiences with borders. The port, a place between the elements water and land. Goods will be shipped from the land over the sea to other countires and other goods are coming through the port back into the land.

A constant exchange between goods and persons, a daily in- and export of values.

Art Performance is a similar place. The port is the human body itself, that exchanges his inside values with the outside world. Communication take place.
