As with the following Marathons, the intense multi-day and multi-input workshop culminates in a final Live Performance Art Event, in which the participants are given the opportunity to present a work in a public platform that embraces their explorations throughout the workshop.
Participants collectively curate and programme this event, therefore deciding on it's format, duration, and ultimately how works are experienced by audiences. The facilitators offer support and advice for this process, making the participants aware of individual work and event wide considerations that need to be addressed when performing and or organising work in a platform.
For Berlin 2015, the participanting artists decided upon presenting shorter standalone works within a durational framework with simultaneous process based works performed around the locality of Cell63 artplatform between 11am and 7pm.
As much as this final event is an opportunity for audiences to witness new work, it is a platform for the artists to experiment and give form to the various new influences they have absorbed and are processing; an immediate and valuable opportunity for reflection and articulation.
