About Performance

About Performance is the refereed journal of the Department of Performance Studies, University of Sydney, and is concerned in the broadest possible way with the phenomenon of performance and with the processes involved in its production and reception. We are interested in all genres of aesthetic performance and live art, as well as social/cultural performance, ritual, and a wide range of performative activity. The journal provides a forum for analysis, theorisation and critique by academic researchers and performance makers. We welcome articles that bring theoretical perspectives derived from other disciplines to bear on performance practice.

Each issue of About Performance is devoted to a single theme and the journal appears once a year.
