SAAL Biennale 2015!

16th International Performing Arts Festival

17-30.08.2015

 



SAAL Biennaal is a brand new festival by its name, but it is planted on the fertile ground of the oldest international performing arts festival in Tallinn - August DanceFestival. After completing the last 15th edition of August DanceFestival time was ripe for changes and therefore SAAL Biennaal was born. The name of the festival ties it with Kanuti Gildi SAAL and it will take place every second year.

As a result of the overall melting of the borders between different art forms it is only natural that the program of SAAL Biennaal encloses besides performances in theatre space also staged exhibitions, film installations, city walks and other in-between genre events. While it is not for granted that festival has one curator, as Priit Raud challenged Annika Üprus to experiment together on co-curatorship concept.

SAAL Biennaal is as contradictory as the society around it and the time when it takes place. Located on the crossroads of art forms this festival is ready for unpredictable. The most relevant are the questions proposed by artists to themselves and others, regardless of their form.

SAAL Biennaal 2015 encloses artists from Belgium, Austria, France, China, Norway, Japan, USA, Sweden and Estonia. The events take place in traditional venues - Kanuti Gildi SAAL, Von Krahl Theatre, Theatre NO99, Vaba Lava and National Opera as well as in Draakon Gallery and all over the city space.
