MIP – International Performance Manifestation – was the second event promoted by CEIA in Belo Horizonte. The proposal sprang from the desire of enabling the experience of performance art as a contemporary artistic practice. Still misunderstood as a means of expression, even after almost a century of existence, performance art is still discriminated against. Maybe due to the fact that it is a very broad art form, able to bring together any human practice that synthesizes expression and knowledge.
Gathering people from different cities, states and countries, MIP bears the mark of having become a unique social event where the bodies, touched in multiple ways, are taken to other levels of sensibility, sharing and exchange.
Period: July through August, 2003.
