Brian Fuata, the ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art winner 2020, makes a new solo performance in Kuopio City Theater premises.
Intermission (2022) is a feature length structured improvisation framed by a theme of the other within. Produced entirely onsite in Kuopio through a six week residency from August 1 to the opening in September 12-19 with a team of artist friends and the citizens of the town. The performance exploits the building of Kuopio City Theatre as a public physical object of representation. Approximately 60 minutes, the live work is divided into three timed 20 minute stages. It begins firstly in the carpark, moving to the outdoor amphitheatre and culminating in the foyer.
The performances on the 14th and 16th September will merge two sets of audiences coinciding with the actual intermission of the theatre’s production of Steinbeck’s, Of Mice and Men.
Brian Fuata is the 2020 winner of ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art. The prize and the performance at ANTI Festival are funded by the Saastamoinen Foundation.
Intermission is performed in collaboration with the Kuopio City Theater.
