PERFORMEANDO (Spanglish word, coined by artist Hector Canonge in the context of Live Action Art) refers to the creation of an event, presentation, act, action, and/or artistic corporal expression. PERFORMEANDO is a project / program focusing on featuring works of performance artists who identify themselves as Latin/o/a or Hispanic living and working in the United States and Europe.

Participating Artists:
Shawn Escarciga (Mexico / United States), “Shanaynay.”
Angela Freiberger (Brazil / United States), “Bath’s house 7.”
José López (Mexico / Germany), “An American Nap.”
Oscar Martín (Spain / Germany), “In Between.”
Verónica Peña (Spain / United States) “Alien of Extraordinary Ability.”
Emilio Rojas (Mexico / United States), “Glory of Western Civilization."
Rodolfo Salpietra (Italy / United States), “Come Dine With Me.”
Isabel Soares (Brazil / Germany), “8 Km. or Some Water.”
Doris Steinbichler (Austria / Mexico), “The Scream.”

PERFORMEANDO serves as platform for dialogue and exchange, and fosters collaborations based on the premise of experimentation and exploration of Live Action Art in the context of the Hispano-American experience in the United States. The project along with its program presentations in the city and abroad have contributed to a better understanding of the concerns, experiences and creative processes of participating artists. Since 2013, PERFORMEANDO has been presented in collaboration with spaces in the NYC area in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. In 2014, the program was presented and introduced to worldwide audiences during the Month of Performance Art in Berlin, Germany. For 2015 PERFORMEANDO will broaden its scope reaching out to Latin America to work with artists from various countries who have been making an impact in the development of Arte Acción. The exchange of experiences, ideas, and practices in performance will further contribute to the growth of participating artists and independent art spaces in the Americas.
