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

For the opening of Réunion in Honduras, the independent art space will host a performance festival with local and international artists in the thickets of the cloud forest of La Tigra. This once-disputed mining enclave, which eventually became the country’s first national park, is named after the female puma – and, true to its name, there are actually several of the elusive creatures to be found inside.  

In collaboration with vegetable and flower farmers from the nearby village of Loma Alta Norte, the performance festival will turn away from the urban cultural circuit and move to the quieter, more wooded environment of the mountains. By leaving the context and audience of typical art spaces and museums behind, the performance festival hopes to open itself to new forms of presentation, discussion, and experiences of art.

The natural landscape will serve as a window onto a multitude of activities, such as walks, film projections, conversations, and performances.
