Performance commissions

The Centre regularly collaborates with other Birkbeck research centres to commission and support new performance work. View some of our recent commissions below.

Aya v. O and Bruno Vilhar, ‘Danse Macabre’ (2022)
Alinah Azadeh, ‘Care(free)’ (2021)
Fauve Alice, ‘Spaces of Care’ (2021)

NB: is a performative text work about the radical potentials of plurality, shifting, and occupying multiple spaces. That is, of being more than one thing. As of course we all are.
NB: was a commission from the Birkbeck Gender and Sexuality forum for Birkbeck Arts Week 2020: online.
