The selected publications on this page presents the varied ways artists, curators, and researchers experiment with performance. For some, performance is a way to defy the commodification of art, a physical intervention into dominant narratives, or an enactment that eludes state control. Performance may be protest that takes place in the theatre, on the streets, in a café, or in a private setting. For others, it is experimentation with form: a transformation, appropriation, or expansion of dance, theatre, and film.
