The leading exhibition dedicated to live performance returns to New York for its eighth edition. Highlights of the programme, curated by founding director RoseLee Goldberg, include new works by Nairy Baghramian, Ed Atkins, and Korakrit Arunanondchai. This year’s event will also reflect upon the centenary of the Bauhaus, with artists responding to the legacy of the art and design school, which was the first to hold a theatre class. Find out more from Performa’s website.
