Contingency of the Now
Curated by Rie Hovmann Rasmussen
The performance project 'Contingency of the Now' explored the questions: what is presence, what is its role today and what potential does it have? Taking its point of reference from the discussion on presence within performance, the project investigates processes and structures of presence and how it might effect and transform relations between the performer, audience and space.
