Potentials of Performance (2011-2012)
Potentials of Performance was the third themed year of Performance Matters.
Across these pages you can find information and documentation of its activities, which culminated in P o P, a public programme of hands-on performance research across three venues in Hackney Wick, London, 26-27 October 2012.
Potentials of Performance centred around a series of commissioned Dialogue Projects by Associate Researchers, which were then staged during P o P through innovative workshops, chat shows, round-tables, lectures, screenings, installations, performances, and a Materials Room. P o P also included staged responses from respondents working across the creative and critical fields of performance, and an evening programme of events by special guests.
About Potentials of Performance
Following Performing Idea (2009/2010) and Trashing Performance (2010/2011), Potentials of Performance (2011/12) focused on performance's emergent and unrealised potential: what does performance hold in store in its present-day testing of the limits of the social, the cultural, the vital and the critical? What lies latent within and around performance? What is waiting to be realised, developed, and made legible?
