Live Arts Week VI is set to take place this April. Taking place in Bologna, the festival is built around a marathon of performances at former Modern Art Gallery Ex GAM, as well as other events at various venues across the city.

“This event dedicated to live arts, hosts a blend of new productions that revolve around the presence, performance and perceptual experience of sounds and visions” explains the festival, saying it plans to give a space for “existential athletics”.

The line up features Maria Hassabi, Alexandra Bachzetsis, Mette Edvardsen, Lorenzo Senni, Anastasia Ax with C. Spencer Yeh, Ulrich Krieger, Valerio Tricoli, Cristina Kristal Rizzo, Ashes Withyman Moore, Nicolàs Lamas, Mattin, Prurient and others.

Watch a video of Anastasia Ax with Lars Siltberg performing Katarsis at Göteborg Konsthall earlier this year. She'll perform with C Spencer Yeh on 29 April.

Live Arts Week VI takes place in Bologna between 26–29 April.
