Vulnerable Paradoxes is a series of five artist-driven round tables that opens up a space for the discussions we so often don’t get to have. Asking ourselves how and why we make performance today, what makes our artistic desires political, what do we want from the audience and what might they want from us, what can performance do that other art forms can’t, with the goal of provoking each other towards a greater understanding of what we do and why.
