Why Performance Studies? Here we publish some attempts at answering this question, by putting in evidence the concrete experience of the interviewed.
This is a section of interviews we conducted with Richard Schechner (NYU), Diana Taylor (NYU/ Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics), Kimberly daCosta Hulton (Rutgers University) and Maaike Bleeker (Utrecht Universiteit, PSi President). We are also planning on interviewing André Lepecki (NYU), Paulo Raposo (Universidade de Lisboa/CRIA) and Zeca Ligièro (Universidade Federal do Estado do Rio de Janeiro).This section is under construction.
