A platform for encounters between artists, communities and audiences, the festival will a offer variety of international performance art around Helsinki.

The theme of the AMORPH!14 festival is community performance. The featured works address such issues as: What is community for us? What might it be? How do communities perform themselves? The festival features recent works by ten performance artists and eight communities.

In addition to unforgettable performances, the festival programme includes workshops, club nights, exhibitions, screenings and an open panel discussion in collaboration with Mother's tongue festival. Presenting a wide range of contemporary performance artists, the festival also offers the public an opportunity to engage them in discussion.

During the festival, an ArtBus festival bus will be driving around the centre of Helsinki. ArtBus is a performing art space that runs with electricity and offers daily changing thematic programme throughout the Amorph!14 festival.

The festival is generously supported by the Kone Foundation, the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture, the City of Helsinki and the Visual art Finland Frame.
