TRANSACTIONS is an exchange between two prominent experimental artists’ groups, Mobius Artist Group in Boston and Bbeyond in Belfast, Northern Ireland.7 Mobius artists, Marilyn Arsem, Jimena Bermejo, Daniel DeLuca, Milan Kohout, Mari Novotny-Jones, Sandrine Schaefer, and Anna Wexler, have come to Belfast to perform new works specifically created for presentation in outdoor, pubic space.This exchange, which emphasizes Boston and Belfast’s relationship as sister cities, provides opportunities for artists working at the helm of experimental practice in live performance to learn from each other, share audiences, work across national and cultural contexts while building connections through the creation of new works.
In September, artists from Bbeyond will be travelling to Boston in order to complete the exchange.
