Project ID in the Hague

25 June to 7 July 2019
The Hague, The Netherlands

ABOUT PROJECT ID IN-BETWEEN IDENTITIES

Stuart Hall outlines in the essay “Cultural Identity and Diaspora” (1990) that modern identities are no longer fixed but emerge as “unstable points of identification or suture, which are made within the discourses of history and culture.” In his words, life stories are not determined exclusively by class, race, gender, and religion, but instead there is a mixed ancestry; an identification with diversity in countries, traditions, values and beliefs. While the raised global interactions are causing a re-evaluation of traditions and lifestyles, an awareness of individual and collective change springs from the urgency to find new modes of shaping our identities and life stories. Performativity as a language calls for continuous transformation and functions as a form of social action, while contemporary performance art as a logical art form shapes, communicates, confirms and honours the value of differing life stories in multiple contexts.

Project ID In-Between Identities is a temporary creative community project aiming to face artistically the issue of the crisis of identity, working in performance art through personal and the societal conceptions of individuality. In a 10-days intensive Residency Class, P.s. Den Haag provides for a space to develop solo and collective performances under the tuition of artist duo VestAndPage together with Marilyn Arsem, to be presented during the weekend July 5 – 7, 2019 in a public event. A collective performance opera, solo and collaborative performances by the participants and additional invited international artists, as well as lectures and an Study Movie Room, happen in the centre of The Hague at the former school building De Helena, Stichting Ruimtevaart, Maakhaven and De Barthkapel, a suggestive old convent chapel.
