What is at stake in experiencing performance*? And how is this experience mediated, live and direct in close physical contact or mediated and transmitted via technology and screens? What does it mean to make performance, now in a pandemic and post-pandemic world? Where is performance made and shown, and by whose authorship?
Posing a series of questions we will explore what is at stake in performance now? Rather than expect to create answers we will muse on the conversations as provocations. Each guest contributor will frame their chosen question with urgency responding to the current climate for making and sharing performance.
The event will be in person and be broadcast live.
*Our use of the word performance encompasses all live contemporary art forms
Timetable and a full list of speakers to be announced shortly.
