During the summer of 2017, Marres invited a group of performers to interact with the exhibition The Painted Bird: Dreams and Nightmares of Europe.
Curator: Valentijn Byvanck
The program consisted of a series of performances that were called Marres Movements. The program added moving bodies and musical performances to the landscape of wall paintings. The exhibition transformed into a massive stage for performance, dance, music and art.
Performers and dancers entered the exhibition during opening hours with several improvised and scripted pieces and interventions as well as a musical tour through the city.
