FADO Performance Art Centre newest recurring performance series takes on the abstract form of a school, a university, a workshop, a class or a course, in the form of our own homemade academy. 

 

Performance Academy is a platform in which artists constitute their own school of learning–performing pedagogy–for an audience in the form of peer-to-peer academia, where self-organizing and personal experience as knowledge is valued over institutionalized frameworks. Artists, writers and creative thinkers from the performance art milieu as well as adjacent practices such as curation, social practice, film/video and more, develop and offer mini-courses (of 3 or more sessions dissmeinted over several weeks) presenting ideas and covering a range of topics and  that each facilitator is already an expert in (however one might define "expert"). A workshop in the form of a performance; a performance in the form of a school.

 

Performance Academy is not a workshop and it’s not a school either. It's best understood as a public engagement opportunity with an artist who is invested in inverting notions of authority in practice, research, and pedagogy. Through a sustained commitment to collective learning, Performance: Academy transforms the concept of a course into a group performance.
