feminist performance creation and the city


"Feminist Performance Creation and the City" (FPCC) is a community-engage pilot project  between PULSE, Concordia University faculty and students in the Department of Theatre and Imago Theatre, a Montreal based not-for-profit professional company whose mission is to focus on creating and performing stories from a feminist perspective. 

Feminist approaches to site-specific urban performance creation recount stories that do not fit neatly into theatre and performance practices, discourses and paradigms. The aims of this partnership are to build a research-creation model for site-specific urban performances that produce scenographic instances of feminist perspectives in the built environment.

Since the onset of COVID-19 the FPCC team has been working to adapt the project to a digital platform. You can find more information about the works in development hereStay tuned for more details and the launch of our downloadable multimedia walks in June 2021 - BYOD (bring your own device!)
