What is possible in silence? How many types of silences can we experience? Which options are there to perform without sound? What is the strength of a body without words?


Mute, artfestival in silence is an artistic experiment that focuses on soundless performances. Mute raises questions and remains answers. It commits to an unconditional existence and sees silence as a time-space zone in which everyone is equal.
