There, where the limits between fine arts and theatre become obscured, PERFO 2 shows the Performance as an autonomous artistic expression. PERFO 2 shows the extremes that maybe attained in the art of manifestation. PERFO 2 is a selection for reflection, offers a choice of artists, gives a bouquet of possibilities and thus indicates the state and stage of progress, as a magazine does. Not more and not less than a state of affairs. It cannot be otherwise because of a great flexibility and variety of the medium. PERFO 2 is the consequence of a starting point of Lantaren/Venster: to show the charm of a unique moment.

We asked all artists who accepted our invitation, from Ashley to Ziranek, for sound lasting one and a quarter minutes, without any restrictions. We composed the Symphonie Perfomanique from the material, whereby the alphabet was our only reference.

The L.P. is rather determining the atmosphere for the PERFO 2 world than that all the pieces refer directly to the works to be performed during the festival. Some are just doing that, other form an obscure link. Thus David Medalla mentions the title and contents of his work in a letter personally spoken to you, but the Israeli, Joseph Semah, plays original recordings from the Yom Kippur war in which he fought. Thus Anne Beans Bow Gamelan Ensemble and the Regressive Rock of Jacques Charlier on the record, have a direct relationship with what they perform at the festival, but the regressive time of Daniel Farioli, the desire of Ria Paquee, the alienation of Stuart Sherman, the humor of Komarand Melamid and the blessing by orlan of the concept of Performance are associative audio-visual collages.

The report consists of a book with texts about and photographs of the daily activities during the festival.

L.P. and report form a mutual integrated supplement.
