In response to Vulnerable Paradoxes

PME ART + collaborators

Inspired by the roundtables that took place last year at OFFTA, In response to Vulnerable Paradoxes invited the artists, witnesses and organizing committee to write about their experience in any way they wished, gathering the texts together in a free online publication. A vital compendium of writing and thinking about performance, politics and life. The publication will be launched with an online version of Relay-Interview, allowing everyone to ask questions in response to each other’s contributions.

Through performances, installations, conferences, and public process, the work of PME-ART examines the performance situation with considerable openness to artistic co-creators and audiences. Presented in more than fifty cities over the last twenty years, past performances include Every Song I’ve Ever Written and The DJ Who Gave Too Much Information.

The event will be in both French and English. If you would like live translation into English, please send an email to
