feminist performance creation and the city
"Feminist Performance Creation and the City" (FPCC) is a year-long project between PULSE, Concordia University faculty 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 here. Stay tuned for more details and the launch of our downloadable multimedia walks in May 2021 - BYOD (bring your own device!)
