                AMORPH!99 International Performance festival
                27th,28th and 29th August 99 - Helsinki, Finland

AMORPH!99 will take place on the 27th, 28th and 29th August 1999 in
Helsinki. We are looking for works for the festival. Please, send your
proposals for performances, live-installations or happenings until the 15th
February 99.
The venue for AMORPH!99 will be a new gallery of approximatly 200m2, called
ForumBox and which is situated by the seashore - a 10 minutes walk from the
centre, but performances are also welcome to take place in other places.

With your proposal send us a C.V and portfolio of some of your previous
works (laser copies,photos, c-tapes, VHS-tapes, etc; but do not send
originals nor slides -  portfolios won`t be returned).

                The grass is always greener on the other side

                The greener side is the starting point for the
                performer. The creation of boundaries - be they
                cultural, national, or personal - is the
                reference point or frame we choose to be in. If
                the attraction of the other side is both
                a search for similarities and a challenge given
                by the unknown, could it be that art is reality
                made of the illusions we share?

                It is raining outside. I am walking in the street.
                Suddenly I notice that the shopwindow captured our
