July 27, 2006
The festival will take place over 5 nights in early November 2006 in the Fort Point neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. Featuring over 20 international participants and the 15 members of the Mobius Artists Group, the festival will expose the Boston community to an established network of performance artists and create a forum for discussion of the work.
Located in the Midway Theater, a dramatic two-story space in the newly renovated Midway Studios Building, the Festival will be smack in the middle of Boston’s newest artist’s community. Also included in the Festival is a symposium with three respondants invited by Mobius; these critics and academics will respond to the works and host a wider discussion between artists and the public.

Mobius, Inc. is an artist-run 501(c)3 non-profit organization for experimental work in all media. Founded by members of the Mobius Artists Group in 1983, the total organization is a laboratory for artists experimenting at the boundaries of their disciplines. Presenting new work by dozens of artists each year, Mobius is unequalled in Boston in its commitment to Boston artists and the alternative arts.
The Mobius Artists Group was founded by Marilyn Arsem in 1977. We are known for incorporating a wide range of the visual, performing, and media arts into innovative live performance, video, installation and intermedia works. The members of the group create projects individually, collaboratively with members of the group, as well as with other artists.
From 1983-2003, the group ran an alternative art center at 354 Congress St. in Boston. Founded by members of the Mobius Artists Group in 1983, the art center was a laboratory for artists experimenting at the boundaries of their disciplines. Presenting new work by dozens of artists each year, both members of the Mobius Artists Group as well as guest artists, Mobius was unequalled in Boston in its commitment to Boston artists and the alternative arts. In the summer of 2003 Mobius Artists Group left this long-time home, moved to a space devoted to archives, studio, office, and storage, and began programming work at theaters, galleries, and public sites, throughout the world.
