A musical swarm performance
Panophilia is an orchestral performance that abandons the notion of boundaries between performer and audience and focuses on the process instead of the result. Visual artists, musicians and performers convene at the art space Röda Sten Konsthallen to collectively create the musical performance artwork Panophilia. Over the course of two days the swarm will turn the site into a multidimensional, living sound installation. They act as a creative human swarm rather than a group of individuals. The idea: achieving the dissolution of physical, mental, and genre boundaries by creating together – from scratch.
The participants decide on site what’s going to happen. The outcome is irrelevant, there will be no ”product” to present. Instead, the process of producing art collectively and being the productive body becomes the actual performance artwork. The installation changes constantly, depending on the dynamics of the day.
Panophilia establishes itself and is open to the public Thursday May 26 12.00-20.00 and Friday May 27 12.00–21.00. Attendees may come and go as they please during the opening hours. The audience is invited to participate in this all-encompassing interdisciplinary exercise, make themselves heard and become part of the swarm and the creative process. Panophilia is created by us all. We no longer distinguish between stage, orchestra, white cube, parking lot, and dancefloor. The event is walkable all around. Sight, sound, scent, locale, and people become one. There are no guest stars; everyone’s a guest, everyone’s a star.
