Performatik 2015 presents performances, exhibitions and talks by over 35 artists and curators. The festival opens with a performance of the first major creation for theatre by Ulla von Brandenburg. It is a play sung by five actors and the Brussels Brecht-Eisler Chorus. They create a sort of ‘re-enactment’ of the celebrations of the Saint-Simonists in Paris between 1832 and 1835. These followers of Henri de Saint-Simon (1760-1825), a utopian socialist and forerunner of Karl Marx, set up a large, tightly organised group of thinkers, scientists and industrialists who strived to create a moral, social, political and poetic world order.
