Performance Studies International #13, Happening/Performance/Event will look to both Performance Studies' history and futurity. The invocation of Happening harkens to the performance practices that emerged from the late 1950's. That mode of avant-garde performance and the critical approach developed by Michael Kirby for describing it are key sites for the origins of Performance Studies. The event has been theorized as an occurrence that is ultimately an interruption that represents the not-yet-imagined new. This conference will feature papers, panels, and performances that consider the happening and the event, and their key relationship to the field of Performance Studies.
The thirteenth PSi conference, Happening, Performance, Event, will take place in New York on November 8th-11th 2007, and is being hosted by the Department of Performance Studies, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University in collaboration with Performa, the performance biennial.
