Performance Studies international
Welcome to the new home of PSi online.
Performance Studies international was founded in 1997 to promote communication and exchange among artists, thinkers, activists, and academics working in the field of performance. PSi represents and supports the broad field of performance studies through its annual conference, awards, news, working groups, and GPS Journal.

Performance events have long served as potent sites for the creation of atmospheres and affects. Today, performance arts and inter-disciplinary scholarship are increasingly reflecting on the climactic conditions within which societies function, and under which life can best flourish.
Activism, art-science collaborations and new theatre aesthetics provide provocative means of interpreting and acting upon such circumstances. And innovative research methodologies and new conceptual paradigms offer ways of re-thinking this radically inter-connected world across many scales of human and non-human activity.
