Performance Festival
La Tigra National Park
Feb 23 – 25, 2018
Performance Festival

For the opening of Réunion in Honduras, the point of reference for local and international artists will be the La Tigra National Park. What was a disputed mining enclave until the end of 19th century, became Honduras’ first national park. It is named after the female puma, which is called la tigra, and true to its name, there are actually several of the elusive creatures around. 

In collaboraton with the vegetable and flower farmers of Loma Alta Norte (nearby village), the performance festival will turn away from the audiences of the urban cultural circuit and moves on to more wooded and silent environment of the mountains. 

The display window of nature will be the setting for a multitude of activities, such as walks, film projections, conversations and actions. By leaving the institutional field of art spaces and museums, the performance festival in the midst of the cloud forest will open up to new forms of presentations, discussions and experiences around art. 

Participating: Scarlett Rovelaz (HN), Thomas Geiger (DE), Nahun Pérez (HN), Marcel Meury (CH), Leonardo Gonzalez (HN), Sandino Scheidegger (CH), Lucy Tomasino (SV), Natalia Dominguez (SV), Javier Calvo (CR), Paul Maheke (FR), Carlos Fernández (CR), Luca Müller (CH), Miguel Romero (HN) and Johanna Schaible (FR/CH) – curated by Adán Vallecillo.
