EXPERIMENTICA is Chapter’s annual five-day Festival in Cardiff, Wales.

EXPERIMENTICA hosts a packed programme of live art, performance and interdisciplinary projects and offers a significant platform for UK and international artists to produce or introduce their work.

EXPERIMENTICA is an opportunity for artists at all stages in their career to present challenging works within an open, supportive and artist-focused environment and is committed to supporting artists who engage with live practice and employ an experimental approach.

EXPERIMENTICA can be entertaining, dangerous, confusing, life-affirming, playful, provocative, thoughtful, witty, engaging, irritating and everything in between.

EXPERIMENTICA is committed to supporting artists who engage with live practice and employ an experimental approach.

 

ABOUT THIS YEAR’S FESTIVAL

EXPERIMENTICA15: ARE YOU ASKING FOR EVIDENCE OF THE TRUTH?

“How negotiable is a fact in nonfiction? In 2003, an essay by writer John D’Agata was rejected by the magazine that commissioned it due to factual inaccuracies. That essay—which eventually became the foundation of D’Agata’s critically acclaimed About a Mountain—was accepted by another magazine, The Believer, but not before they handed it to their own fact-checker, Jim Fingal."

The Lifespan of a Fact 2012

What emerges from this ‘quasi’ fictional account of the exchanges between D’Agata and Fingal - and from seven years of increasingly aggressive arguments, negotiations and revisions - is the struggle to navigate the boundaries of nonfiction, truth, belief, history, myth, memory and forgetting.

This year EXPERIMENTICA presents new versions of the truth.
