Tisch School of the Arts
New York Univerity, NY

We invite you to attend the First Annual Performance Studies
Conference, "The Future of the Field."  The program will
feature over 50 events, including panels, roundtable
discussions, practical workshops, and performances. Over 180
scholars, graduate students, and artists will participate as
speakers, moderators, and performers. In all, our
participants will represent over 40 academic or artistic
institutions from around the country and abroad. Our
international participants will hail from France, the former
Yugoslavia, Slovenia, Canada, England, Israel, and Australia.
The conference will feature four plenary sessions and seven
"breakout" sessions, during which smaller panels, seminars,
and performances will be held concurrently.  Many panels
address interdisciplinary topics and aim to expand and
complicate issues in performance scholarship.  Major areas of
inquiry include: new dance scholarship; theatre research; new
technologies and performance studies; queer performativity
and performance; gender in/as performance; reading/writing
the body; race and performance scholarship; and performing
new identities.

Performances will be held each night. A Kick-Off cabaret will
be held on Thursday night.  The Friday and Saturday night
events at a nearby nightclub, Fez, will feature Yareli
Arizmendi, Circus Amok, The Five Lesbian Brothers, Marianne
Goldberg, Dan Hurlin, Guillermo Gomez Pena, La Grand Scena
Opera, Holly Hughes, Salley May, Peggy Pettitt, and Carmelita

This conference inaugurates an annual event to be hosted on
alternate years by the departments of Performance Studies at
the Tisch School of the Arts and at Northwestern University.
