Pathways into Performance Curation

William Peterson

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    While curatorial practices have long been at the heart of Museum Studies, the function of the curator of live performance remains under-theorized and virtually absent in any consideration of pedagogical practices. Given the increased importance of this role, what are some of the pedagogical pathways into the functioning of curation in performance? After setting out a brief history of how curation has become increasingly central to how performance is packaged and circulated locally and internationally, the author considers some of the pedagogical practices he has used to facilitate deep thinking about curation in the performing arts, drawing from his experience of working with a diverse group of international artists in the MAIPR programme and in South East Asia and the Pacific.
