Accompanying the Feminist Performance Creation in the City (FPCC) project has been the development and housing of the FPCC reading room. Initially installed at Concordia’s 4th Space and currently housed at the offices of Imago Theatre, these texts were assembled to stimulate and support the ongoing performance research by offering readily available documentation of exemplary projects and texts related to feminist performance. The reading room remains a critical resource for feminist performance research, providing a bibliographic list to stimulate discussions amongst the project's participants and beyond.
