The Performance Platform segment of the Biennale will again be a significant feature of the festival in public spaces across Colombo, spilling over from galleries into the streets, engaging with the public. Using movement, clown, contact improvisation techniques, poetry and performance art.

The performance focus envisioned and developed by Floating Space Theatre Company (FTSC) for the CAB 2016, will see the creation of a discursive context around ‘performance’ within its visual art history, emerging trends in other performative disciplines and as practiced in a Sri Lankan context. The focus will be to discuss the nature of these performance interventions as they take place within art/public spaces, and the kinds of ‘publics’ it reaches
