Participatory Dissent: Debates in Performance
The Western Front

Western Front Performance Art is pleased to present Participatory Dissent: Debates in Performance, an encounter between traditional forms of performance art (endurance/duration) and new forms of social practice and intervention. Produced in conjunction with the LIVE Biennial of Performance Art, the program looks to the overlaps between practices, modes of thinking, and opinions about contemporary performance. Viewers are invited to participate, enjoy and intervene in four days of individual performance art, social intervention, and discussion surrounding performance art practices that forge new relationships between artists, site and community. Facilitating the creation of new work by artists from across Europe and North America, Participatory Dissent: Debates in Performance will consist of individual and collaborative works (situated at the Western Front, online, and in various outdoor locations in Vancouver), online discussions, a round-table discussion event at the Western Front and a panel discussion at Emily Carr Institute. Works will address public intervention, alternative economies, the limits of the body, and cultures of fear in the post 9/11 era. This series of events is organized by Western Front Performance Art Guest Curator Natalie Loveless (invited by iKatun).

Meet with me, and I will offer you a sum of money and a choice.
As part of the ongoing Free Money project, I will be making appointments to meet people in cafés and give them money in Vancouver on October 18-19. Meetings will last approximately a half hour, and will take place between 1pm and 5pm on those days. If you're in Vancouver and would like to participate, please email me ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and we'll set up a time.
