  on performance art in Myanmar, Asia and Beyond Pressure
- Ieke Trinks
  performance on performance, lecture on her work, Trickster and PAE

Performances by Moe Satt, Maung Day, Ma Ei and Mrat Lunn Htwann.
The atmosphere was open and intimate, playful and loaded with a subtile seriousness.
Through the performances the political situation in Myanmar got tangible.
The curious audience was invited to participate in every performance, which happened with great eagerness and surprising effects and reactions.
Each performance got different layers and directions.
The mingling of the States in Extrapool found ground.

Day 3: workshop by Moritz Ebinger

Day 3:

Moritz Ebinger, artist, joins Deelstaat=.
He gives a workshop in the Kronenburger Park in Nijmegen.

The workshop consist of the following parts:
     a. Moritz asks the artists to respond to a song he wrote.
     b. The workshop is to be held outside in the park.

 In the park Moritz starts with drawing on leaves, that he pickes up from the ground. He gives each  artist a leaf. The artists make drawings on the leaves and add things, like wire and actions.

                                                                            Ma Ei

Ieke Trinks

After listening to the song Moritz wrote, everyone is invited to play - make sound - on the trombone.

                                                                   Mrat Lunn Htwann

                                                                        Ieke Trinks


A passerby is also invited to join and play on the trombone. He plays the 'Stars from Heaven'. However, he was too shy to come and play a live performance in Extrapool on friday, 18th october: The Myanmar Performance Night.

                                                                     Moritz Ebinger

Moritz tells the story about how he got the trombone from a friend.

The sounds made in the park with the trombone will be used for a grammaphone record by Moritz for the 'Golden Project', on which he is currently working. Two participants of the Deelstaat - Hinde Chaatouf en Maung Day - are invited and now busy making poems for this project.
