TEMP’ORA International Meeting 2018

Dear members and visitors

The 2018 meeting T.I.M. is scheduled for July 17 through July 21st.

Our philosophy is to build up an exchange of artistic competences then each evening a offer short performance that would follow morning group workshop for the tutti afternoon small groups with similar or mixed disciplines.

This is less of a contemporary venue for solo or heavily composed projects than a space to build interdisciplinary modules beneficial for performance  experimentation. We will strive to Embrace the Unknown.

This meeting will be held in the heart of Bordeaux next to the Marché des Capucins 10mn walk from the train station Gare St.Jean.

We will have a mobile space on three levels at Halles des Douves 4 rue des Douves Easy to find through Google Map just Walk from Gare St.Jean to Cours de la Marne.

From Airport Mérignac one ticket 1euro 60 with stop off at Capucins (45mn) you are 100m from the space.

For five days we have a number of gifted artists willing to embrace the philosophy of this years’ theme. R.I.R. Révolutions Imaginaires Re-Visitées

Revisting Imaginary Revolutions is quite apropos seeing that we are exactly 50 years removed from the MAY 68 events.

What is left of the utopian spirit of the times that put man on the moon that launched protests against the Vietnam war saw the emergence  of free jazz and progressive rock happenings art installations and electronic medium explosions?


The days will be scheduled from 10 AM to 20H with added time until 22h for special installation projects in the upstairs concert space.
