mope16 2-3. september 2016
is an international performance festival now organized for the fourth time by Platform rf., previously the festival has been held in 2002, 2005 and 2008. Originally named “Movement to performance” soon changed in to the short version of the title Mope. In the beginning the aim was simply to gather all so called performances from Vasa and elsewhere which were not directly related to “Art”, e.g. Wasa Tattoo shop did a hook-hanging performance with the tunes of Bon-Jovi in the background. Alongside with professional performance artists it made a new and strange combination! This uncanny mixture of different performances might be a reason that all three festivals have been successful in terms of audience and reception.
This year the event will take place on 2-3 of September at Theatre Casa located on the old barracks area in Vaasa. The festival will begin on Friday 2nd at 18:00 and continue on Saturday 3rd at 14:00. The event has no entrance fee
