1st Beyond Pressure International Performance Art Festival, 08
This was the first time in Myanmar performance art history that a performance art event was officially allowed. This was the first international performance art festival curated by local organizers. The pervious events used to be organized by senior artists. But this time, a large scale event was made happen by a group of eager young artists. From this emerged some new generation performance artists.
