NEON + MAI are partnered to present As One in Athens which consisted of the Abramović Method, newly commissioned performance pieces by Greek artists, and an extensive public program of lectures, workshops, discussions and other public participatory events. The largest and most ambitious project dedicated to performance art in Greece to date, As One placed this contemporary art form in the spotlight in order to engage and inspire the Greek public. With this collaboration, NEON and MAI aimed to provide a platform and help foster a new generation of Greek performance artists. A number of emerging Greek artists were selected by Abramović and MAI to train and perform, and have been commissioned to develop and present new works for the project.
