PSI#11 is taking place at Brown University and throughout Providence this year – and this series of performances and lectures is not to be missed. PSI #12 will be in London in 2006 – so catch the program locally while you can!
PSI describes the #11, “Becoming Uncomfortable” conference as follows:
“We wanted a festival as well as a conference, a mela as well as a lila, a conference that would challenge the confines of the academy during the day and that would spill out into a city called Providence at night. And we wanted to make this affordable.”
This weekend, the performance schedule includes: Kate Bornstein, Nao Bustamente, Pig Iron, New Works, Venus Opal Reese, Gil & Moti, Lee Breuer, Drastic Action, ExPgirls, Neo-Spinsters, Nonna and more. Local performances include Shawn Greenlee Friday, 10:00 PM Tazza (corner of Union and Westminster) in downtown Providence; “History of the Future: Performing Anthropology/Dancing Descension” by Deb T. Larsen – special sunset performance on the Campus Green behind Leeds Theater Lobby (77 Waterman St) on Thursday March 31st, 6:00 to 6:30 & Friday April 1st, 6:00 to 6:30; and Adam Gertsacov and the ACME Miniature Circus, Saturday April 2, 9:00 PM in the Trinity Repertory Theatre Lobby.
