Work the Room

A handbook of performance strategies

'WORK THE ROOM criss-crosses the field of contemporary performance art investigating critical actions and the forms they take: How can politics be performed if the public consists of those present and sharing a room? How can the space between performer and audience be activated? What if we are mobilized by our emotions more than by our political convictions?
