Festival Do Disturb !

Past: April 10 → 12, 2015

Guest contributors for this first edition are MoMA PS1 (New York), Tate Modern (London), the Matadero Madrid, the National Centre for Visual Arts (Centre national des arts plastiques — CNAP, Paris), the 49 Nord 6 Est — Frac Lorraine (Metz, France) and the Berghain (Berlin)

In April 2012, a few days before its reopening, Palais de Tokyo held a warm-up event with 30 hours of non-stop concerts, performances, conferences, screenings and shows. “DO DISTURB !” is on a similar vein. It will be bold, brash and creative, a feast of culture against the backdrop of the usual Palais de Tokyo buzz.

“DO DISTURB !” aims to surprise. It sets out to break down barriers between artistic disciplines, to push boundaries, at the crossroads between dance, music, video and performance.

For this first edition of “DO DISTURB!”, Palais de Tokyo invited guest contributions from some of the world’s best-known art establishments : MoMA PS1 (New York), Tate Modern (London), Berghain (Berlin), Matadero Madrid, CNAP Paris and the 49 Nord 6 Est — Frac Lorraine. New creations, works being premiered in France and unmissable performances will all feature in the programme. Friday 10 April at 6pm to 8pm on Sunday 12 April : three days and two nights of discovery and celebration, offering an insight into the world and all contemporary forms of performing arts. Artists will take possession of the building, creating a unique trajectory that spans several levels of the Palais de Tokyo. The performance spaces, and their points of contact, will be linked by the individual journey each visitor chooses to make.

Chief curator : Vittoria Matarrese, Head of Cultural Programming and Special Projects at Palais de Tokyo.
