Performance is...

... the doing, the how of the doing, and the thing done.

... theory, and theory is performance.

... an object-becoming-a-thing.

... an ethics of encounter.

... a potentiality: for action and activism.

... a way of gaining institutional purchase, and of guaranteeing a return on our investments.

... an unruly sheep.

... coming to SFU (we hope).

A few random thoughts on the Performance Studies Methodologies Workshop, organized by York University's Laura Levin and Marlis Schweitzer at Massey College in Toronto this past weekend. Video footage of the papers delivered at this event will be uploaded to the following site in the coming weeks: And hopefully a follow-up event will be in the offing sometime soon here on the west coast.
