DEFIBRILLATOR GALLERY will be hosting our fifth annual RAPID PULSE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART FESTIVAL to be held JUNE 1-5, 2016. Marking our five-year anniversary, Rapid Pulse will depart from our usual template. This year, we celebrate the number five, having condensed the festival into a five day program with five distinct events each day. We continue to contextualize performance within visual art and champion a wide range of styles and forms. Dynamic programming, decidedly fearless and unique, will provoke thought and stimulate discourse surrounding performance art. We aspire to a mixture of international, local, and national artists.
