Artist Talks

Artist Talks and performative lectures are an integral part of our research/performance practice. Earlier versions of crucial ideas that we have slowly nurtured emerged during these moments of preparation and presentation. In a sense, the flow between our talks, workshops, performances and writing practice is seamless, which is to say, all these forms are various manifestations of our passion for exploring “the performative.”
