Ivo Dimchev

Avoiding deLIFEath


English /  approx. 3 h

Art as a way to avoid life and death? In “Avoiding deLIFEath,” Ivo Dimchev presents a multimedia show anchored in reality as well as artifice. This is Dimchev's first durational performance, the audience is invited to join at any time, in which he explores several of his creative activities like writing, painting, playing the piano, or giving a concert. A brilliant artistic trip, true to Dimchev’s motto: “I prefer flying in Hell over crouching in Heaven.”

Durational performance, admission at all times.
