PLEASE JOIN US ON FRIDAY JUNE 14th FOR AN EVENING OF PERFORMANCE ART!

This special performance event is being organized in conjunction with Performing Research/ Practicing Performance, a special “practice/theory” Spring Session course funded by the Kule Institute for Advanced Study and hosted by the Department of Art and Design at the University of Alberta. In this course students examined performance art from theoretical, historical, and practical perspectives. They developed an understanding of performance as critical cultural practice that interrogates connections between time, action, space, and the body.  As well as ongoing course work, the students participated in master classes with interdisciplinary performance artists and curators, learning to both write about and do performance art in an expanded context.  These performances are the culmination of their course.
