The Performance group brings together departments of the DLCL with other disciplines, such as Drama, to achieve a cross-pollination and to reinvigorate performance theory through consciously re-mediated research interests, methodologies, and forms of scholarly expression. Each year of a three-year program focuses on a distinct goal:
- Discussion of seminal texts and topics with key guests, extended through a blog on Arcade.
- A writing colloquium culminating in a conference and guest performances by invited artists at the Bing Concert Hall opening (2012).
- Joint publication.
