PRESENTED WITH SFU’S INSTITUTE FOR PERFORMANCE STUDIES
Ideas Series events are designed for all audience members who seek a deeper engagement with artists and the work they create. Ideas Series events are open to the public.
Critical Ideas is a three part series in partnership with Simon Fraser University’s Institute for Performance Studies that brings together artists, critics, scholars and audiences to discuss formal, social and ideological issues affecting performance practice and reception today. Panels are moderated by Peter Dickinson and are free and open to the public.
Ethics + Consent
Performance-based practice involves relationships between people, whether amongst artists and practitioners creating and producing the work itself, or between artists and audiences. How do we reconcile with structures of power that shape these relationships? For this panel, we discuss the ethics of consent and care in performance and curatorial practice, reflecting on current social, political and geographic contexts.
