Experimental Action is a three day
International Performance Art festival
that facilitates and shines a spotlight on
experimental performance art that
excites, inspires, and pioneers ideas.
Showcasing both local and international artists,
we aim to cultivate an environment of
engagement and exchange that
expands artistic possibility
through progressive creative action
while exposing Houston audiences to
innovative performance art.
Nurturing positive growth
in ourselves, in our community, in our city, in our world.
Providing a platform for unfettered expression
for artists and works that question and challenge our current systems; we view controversy as an opportunity for positive growth.
Encouraging analytical dialogue
processing the reactions caused by experimental actions and turning them into fuel for positive change and growth.
Taking intentional and calculated risks
providing a platform for daring art that creates new pathways in previously unblazed territory, while being responsible to the safety of our artists, audience and partners.
Honoring personal integrity
in all of our own actions and in the actions of our artists, our audience, and our partners; respecting and honoring each other’s individuality and personal power.
Exemplifying respect and compassion
in all of our interactions and relationships within our community and with our artists, audience, and partners.
