Our Statement Produced over a month each spring, “ARé” features performance art with crossovers of some kind or another. Especially we play on the porosity of the boundary between performing arts and visual arts, experiment with original and unusual forms. As the concept of “genre” becomes more unreliable and less interesting to creators, we expect more artists to nestle themselves in between different forms — not as an act of rebellion or critique, but simply because that’s the way we need to be confronted by art in the world today. These new forms expand the horizons of artists and audiences with work that is visionary, genre-bending, multi-disciplined, startling and original. The festival showcases acclaimed international and local artists and mixes them together with an alchemy that inspires audiences, rejuvenates artists. “ARé” is a broker of international partnerships, a meeting place for creative minds, a showcase of Armenia’s best and an incubator of brilliant new work.
