"Bauge creates embodied experiences re-imagining identity, time and places. She draws upon deeply personal observations in a fierce and poetic way, inviting for constant reconsideration and reframing our shared world".

Joy Harris (Experimental Action, Houston)




Larysa Bauge is a performance artist raised in Belarus and currently based in between several countries in Europe. Bauge’s artistic background is characterized by its diversity. She was trained and worked as an orchestra conductor, composed scores for films and worked as a DJ.

In 2016 she completed a T.I.M.E. Master program (Royal Institute of the Arts, The Hague) after which she mainly focused on performance art. Her graduation project “DONA series” was selected between 400 graduate artists around Europe for the NEU NOW showcase of young artists in Amsterdam. Same year DONA was selected to form part of Our Prime Property collection (

Bauge’s work is shown internationally in museums, art spaces and festivals including:

Venice International Performance Week (IPA, June 2016), Oslo Performance Art Festival (PAO November 2016), Riga Contemporary Art (RCCM, June 2018), New Delhi Contemporary, G-spot gallery (October 2017), Istanbul Performance Art (online exhibition) (September-December 2018) among others.

She passionately promotes performance art by facilitating workshops on Live Art practice (Black Sheep Don’t Lie for artists and not-so-much) and organizing festivals, events and artist run spaces. Currently she co-organizes P.S. This is Live festival in the city in the Hague. In the same time she is an active member of Trixie, a new artist run space in the middle of the Red Light District (

My work challenges the very nature of the concept of belonging, roots, the necessity of being part of something bigger, a family, a tribe, a community, etc. I take this basic instinct as a main poetic driving force, I am on a quest of reestablishing (lost) connections between people.

Strongly influenced by the socially engaged and feminist art practices, I usually work directly with the context and collaborate with concrete people in form of interview, collective music making, improvised theatre. Having gathered this material, I create embodied experiences (performance art pieces), often using sound and participative practices in public spaces.
