Join us! You won't want to miss out on this very special gathering of artists, activists, and scholars right here at PS!
Where: Richard Schechner Studio, 721 Broadway | NYU Skirball Center When: April 2nd-4th
What is Brasil Experiments? This three-day symposium will gather some of the leading artists, scholars, & activists working in Brasil today to present their work (performance, theater, theory, film, dance, music, poetry, street actions) as modes of reflecting, analyzing, and combating the current social-political conditions crushing the civil society in Brasil. With an emphasis on queer, trans, and black performances and theories, this gathering of voices, bodies, and actions constitutes a collective gesture against censorship, discrimination, and rising authoritarianism — not only in Brasil but everywhere and anywhere. This event is spearheaded by Performance Studies, with the generous support of NYU Office of Global Research, IPA, Women & Performance, CLACS, Dept. of Spanish and Portuguese, NYU Skirball, CSGS, and the Department of Museum Studies. Take a look at the full schedule of events. Feel free to come to the full symposium or just one or two sessions.
