The Streets of New York
Performa, the internationally acclaimed organization dedicated to live interdisciplinary performance by visual artists, is pleased to announce details for the ninth edition of its city-wide biennial. The program will focus on New York City as it re-emerges from the prolonged trauma of the pandemic that has radically altered our way of life, affecting the larger social infrastructure as well as the everyday details of our day-to-day existence. Taking place almost entirely outdoors from October 12-31, the Performa 2021 Biennial will use the city as its backdrop, and feature new live performances by Kevin Beasley, Ericka Beckman, Sara Cwynar, Danielle Dean, Madeline Hollander, Andrés Jaque (Office for Political Innovation), Tschabalala Self, and Shikeith. For the first time in its sixteen-year history, the entire Biennial will be open to the public free of charge.
