Critical Ideas brings together artists, critics, scholars and audiences to discuss formal, social and ideological issues affecting performance practice and reception.

Whether as therapy in hospitals, community-building in prisons, outreach in schools, or entertainment at corporate events, performance has long been staged in institutional spaces. Likewise, experiences in those spaces can inform the creation and content of art. We discuss both interfaces in this panel.
