Covid-19

3 April 2020

The Performance Research team would like to wish all our readers and contributors well in this Covid-19 period of uncertainty and instability. 

As Stefan Donath (contributor to this issue and future Performance Research (itals) Co-Editor) has noted ‘we live in difficult times. This somehow gives the issue‚ On Amateurs, a completely new meaning: aren't we all becoming amateurs in this time of pandemic?’.

We are glad to say that, for now, we are still able to continue producing the journal and a set of three issues is planned for next year that will more deeply consider the crisis we are currently living through, they are On (Un)Knowns, On Interruptions and On Repair.

Performance Archives: Recommendations by Performance Research contributors

Archives and archiving, in relation to performance, have been a concern and a passion of Performance Research since its inception, and its own archive, spanning twenty-five years, needs to be digitized and made accessible. In preparing the 100th issue PR wrote to all contributors inviting them to propose: 

'recommendations to specialist archives existing around the world that relate to performance (in its broadest sense). PR is keen to highlight less known, highly specialized, quirky and extra-ordinary performance archives. Perhaps an archive you have used or heard about, visited or discovered on the web - one that you would recommend to Performance Research readers and the wider community of performance research colleagues'.
