Potentials of Performance

Potentials of Performance (2011/2012) is the third and final year of Performance Matters. Led by the project’s postgraduate researchers, it features a vibrant series of commissioned process-led dialogue projects taking place throughout the year.  Exploring and exploding the dialogue as a potential format for thinking through and testing possible futures, it addresses timely questions of performance, promise and transformation. Dialogue projects cross performance’s cultural and international contexts and range from intimate conversations and collaborations to pedagogical experiments and public interventions – all asking what lies latent within performance? What is waiting to be realized, developed, and made legible? What does performance hold in store in its present-day testing of the limits of the social, the cultural, the vital and the critical?
