About Us

The Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics is a consortium of institutions, artists, scholars, and activists dedicated to exploring the relationship between expressive behavior (broadly construed as performance) and social and political life in the Americas. By 'performance,' we refer to the many practices and events—dance, theatre, ritual and religious practice, political rallies, funerals—that involve theatrical, rehearsed, or conventional/event-appropriate behavior.

In addition to textual archives, the Institute draws from 'live' practices and visual media (e.g., video, photographs) to explore the ways in which embodied behaviors participate in the transmission of cultural knowledge and social memory and intervene in the struggle for social justice.
