Performance, Scholarship, Presence is a SSHRC-funded, year-long series of events focused on critical dance studies in Montreal. Hosted at Concordia University, and capitalizing on the critical mass of dance researchers in Montreal, the series aims to connect artists, scholars and publics engaged with the social and political contexts and histories of dance to foster dialogue, create community and imagine futures.
