Dimanche Rouge Estonia-Finland-France


Dimanche Rouge is currently considering experimental performance proposals for its tri-national festival to be held in Estonia, Finland and France from October 17th till the 20th, 2013.

The festival will present a curated program featuring the latest work by artists from all continents.  This will be an excellent opportunity for artists to show their work to an international audience and interact with colleagues from a variety of origins.

Dimanche Rouge Estonia-Finland-France will be hosted at several venues including national art museums and art centers such as EMMA, the largest museum in Finland, and Kultuurikatel, a unique cultural center and former power plant where Tarkovsky filmed Stalker.  A selection of performances will also be presented in France at Le Generateur during the performance art festival Frasq.

The programs will be cross-live-streamed and publicly screened at several venues worldwide to further promote the artists’ work internationally.

The festival will also offer roundtable discussions, workshops and talks for the artists and general public.
