Situating Critical Performance Design Practices in the City
is an experimental research-creation residency that brings together interdisciplinary artist-researchers, designers and scholars, located on four continents (North America, South America, Europe and Oceania), working across the fields of Performance Studies, Design, Architecture and Scenography, Urbanism and Activism. Over the course of 5 days collaborators engage collectively—and publicly— with performance
design as an inclusive body of critical urban spatial practices. The residency itself becomes a site to assemble our research, research questions, and re/orient ourselves and collaborations across multiple times and spaces. Our open lab activities take the form of performative engagements with a variety of
media and materials, sound and video artworks, scales and spaces, remote and in situ a/synchronous salons, networking sessions, workshops, and live broadcasts.
