On the occasion of the celebration of the European Music Day on 21st of June, a large scale happening is going to take place at Megaron Concert Hall of Thessaloniki at 23:00.
DeFence is an open performance for 4 orchestra conductors, 88 performers with: hammers, hand wrenches, motors, sheet metal, cables and other hardware tools used as sound actuators. The ultimate target of the performance is the desintegration of the wire mesh that surrounds the buiding M2.
The visual borderline, the boundaries of the image, the physical barrier, are not setting also a sound limit. Although the conversation with any kind of limitation or borderline is in many cases charming, in this case, for artistic reasons, such an artistic debate can be initiated only if by the end of the event the physical barrier will disintegrate. The border will be deconstructed and abolished through and within the artistic action itself.
