Same Difference: Equinox to Equinox
Same Difference: Equinox to Equinox was a creative celebration of Performance Art around the world, from Australasia to the Middle East and from the Arctic Circle to Central America. Initiated by Bbeyond (Belfast), and supported by the National Lottery through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, demonstrates how people and places, with very diverse cultural backgrounds, share common connections through the arts.
Artists made hour-long performances in public spaces in their respective cities, based on the collective theme: ‘Being (in) Public – Freedom, Action, Art’. The performances were recorded, then edited and shared across the groups by Bbeyond.
Oui Performance co-directors Victoria Gray and Nathan Walker, alongside artist Gillian Dyson participated in York. Around 150 artists from over 35 different countries took part in the event which is documented and distributed through Bbeyond's Website www.bbeyond.live.
