Performance Creation Canada Conference June 2007

Performance Creation Canada
Disciplinary Action: Performance in a Time of Convergence
Ottawa, June 2007

PCC Ottawa Launches Website

Our website for this summer’s Performance Creation Canada (PCC) gathering in Ottawa, Ontario is up and running. Please visit to find information on events, panels, schedules, and more.

Register before June 1st and get a $5.00 rebate!!

You will find our panels and forums truly challenge the boundaries of typical artistic practices, and facilitate critical thought outside the black box. Discussions on presentation spaces, audience/performer relationships, cross and inter-disciplinarity, examine the synapses that occur when artistic practices converge.
