following the six-month focus last year, MoT+++’s performance art programme will return as performance plus 2019 from November 18 – December 21. 

performance plus 2019 will once again see MoT+++ open as a platform for performance art. the experimental programme challenges the concept of performance, and encourages artists to challenge the definition and boundaries of the medium. over the course of five weeks, MoT+++ will host invited resident artists, as well as offer its space as a platform for any artist or individual to perform or present their work.

last year saw an incredibly diverse range of performances and performative activities from a mixture of local and visiting artists. artists that joined as a resident included Phu Luc, Aliansyah Caniago, Enkhbold Togmidshiirev and Lai Dieu Ha. the programme hosted over 30 events featuring planned and spontaneous performances, public workshops and artist presentations that took place at MoT+++ and other satellite locations.
