ARé Fest

Motion, gesture, touch, visual, speech, music, video –in one word, we fuse different media and genres into new forms of artistic expression.

Produced over a month each year, ARé Fest comes to life for showcasing performance art with intriguing intersections.

We explore the fluid boundary between performing and visual arts, delving into inventive and unconventional expressions.

As the notion of rigid "genres" loses its appeal among creators, we anticipate a growing number of artists embracing hybrid forms. This shift isn't about rebellion or criticism; it reflects the evolving nature of art, mirroring the complexity of our contemporary world.

These emerging artistic expressions broaden the horizons of both creators and viewers, presenting visionary, boundary-pushing, interdisciplinary, surprising, and unique works.

The festival showcases acclaimed international and local artists and mixes them with an alchemy that inspires audiences and rejuvenates artists. ARé is a broker of international partnerships, a meeting place for creative minds, a showcase of Armenia’s best, and an incubator of brilliant new work.
