Contemporary performance is at a distinct crossroads. The co-existence and cross-pollination of idea- and technique-based performance practices have given rise to a dynamic conversation over the past several decades. Please join the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance for a symposium featuring the work of current ICPP students on their innovative practices as they merge theory and practice to reimagine performance and curatorial practice in a broader social and political sphere.
