Préavis de Désordre Urbain is a laboratory-festival, 6 intense days dedicated to experimentation, to meeting and artistic creation. Each Preavis festival explores the body in public space and focuses on theme, artistic schedule, time to re-build the project of performance and adapt it to the context of the city of Marseille. Impertinent and subversive proposals are welcome.
Theme of Préavis 2015: EMERGENCY STOP PERFORMANCES
Flow, circulation, transports punctuate urban life. Urban trajectories are often traced to the millimeter, they should not leave the rail. And if we introduced a grain of sand on an urban route….It is vital to create Emergency Stop Performances on these transit urban routes. Emergency Stop Performances dedicated to the body, desires and rituals. We can explore and inhabit these urban routes in other ways and propose to the public to share an artistic and existential experience. The performances will take place on trips in the city, in public transport or at bus and tramway stops. The car, private sphere into the public sphere, may also be a space of performance.
The performances may take place in a bus or tram, on the outside, on the route, at bus and tramway stops, in a car parked in a parking lot, outside of a car (the public being inside) etc. The selected artists adapt their project to the context of urban space, of a theatre and of Friche la Belle de Mai.

-Participate to the residency in public space and to 3 programmed moments
