Performance Perimeters Symposium

Performance Perimeters Symposium is a festival organized in conjunction with a Performance Creation Canada conference to engage a conversation between artists, presenters and audiences on the convergence of forms and ideas that have come to characterize the forums of performance and multi-disciplinary art.

The conference includes panel presentations on the subjects of arts and markets, intangible heritage, representation & self representation, cultural agency, audiences, economies, criticism and curation as well as a debate on the Status of the Artist legislation. This unique Regina event is being organized by New Dance Horizons, Neutral Ground, Curtain Razors and Sakewewak Artists Collective.

PPS is a meeting ground for artists and public to engage with performance work and join in the conversation with other artists, presenters, theorists and writers. Artists including Istvan Kantor, Edward Poitras, Jillian Mcdonald, David Yonge, Debra Dunn, Lori Blondeau, PHONO, Sarah Abbott, Davida Monk, Helen Walkley, John Noestheden, Rob Bos, The Skeleton Crew, Robin Brass, Lynn Acoose, Elwood Jimmy, Joey Tremblay (MC), Carol Greyeyes and others will perform in more than nine Regina locations. There will be a reading of the work of the late Emily Givner, a Web launch for a commissioned project at Soil Digital Media Suite and a Book Event, presenting recent performance art papers and publications with Johanna Householder and MJ Thompson.

Panelists David Garneau, Kathleen Irwin, Rachelle Viader Knowles, Daniel Anderson, MJ Thompson, Dannys Montes de Oca Moreda, Adrienne Wong, Maiko Bae Yamamoto, Naomi Campbell, Glenn Alteen (Moderator) and Jack Udashkin (Moderator), will discuss curation and criticism in live art and open up a dialogue on the economies of performance art and interdisciplinary work.

"Enjoy the restorative powers of symposia." A time and place to take in a moment, a breath, a critical "pause" as Brian Patterson suggests, "We might be doing by engaging & being engaged in the performative."

Performance program and events start with an introductory event Wednesday November 2 through Sunday November 6, 2005. Performance Creation Canada meetings and events take place over the weekend with registration available on line and starting Friday, November 4 at 4:00 pm. The public are invited to attend all events.

Conference registration continues at 4:00 pm on Friday November 4 at Regina's Royal Canadian Legion, 1820 Cornwall Street, Regina, SK.

The organizers acknowledge funding support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, the Department of Canadian Heritage Arts Presentation Canada and the City of Regina.

Advance registration encouraged.
