Can We Perform Our Way to Power?

Announcement & Call for Proposals – PTW 2016: Can We Perform Our Way to Power?

September 23-25, 2016

Deadline for Proposals: February 21, 2016

The ninth Performing the World (PTW) conference will be held in New York City, Friday, September 23 through Sunday, September 25, 2016.

As the practice, understanding and appreciation for performance and play continue to grow, the world context in which it spreads becomes more conflicted. Globalization and the rapid spread of technology spur economic and social growth, while at the same time they produce and exacerbate poverty, war, famine, mass migrations, violence and environmental contamination.
