PSi 25 Conference

Hundreds of international performance artists and scholars meet at the School of Creative and Performing Arts for the 2019 PSi 25 Conference.

Elasticity: The ability to be shaped by an external force and then return to an original shape. It’s the theme of PSi #25, an annual conference presented by the professional association Performance Studies international, and hosted this year by the School of Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) from July 4 to 7, 2019.

The event brings together up to 300 international artists, thinkers, activists, and academics to exchange knowledge on interdisciplinary research, both artistic and academic, in the field of performance.

This year’s elasticity theme refers to adaptability and flexibility, to extremes that are a basic aspect of life in this city. With springtime flooding, summer drought and wildfires, and impressive single-day temperature fluctuations in winter, Calgary’s landscape is perhaps the most visible example of elasticity. Other areas like the economy, politics, educational systems, professional opportunities, and performing arts industries follow a comparable pattern of highs and lows, fluctuating between plenty and scarcity.

The conference features more than 100 panels, performances, workshops and installations inspired by the theme of elasticity. These events focus on artistic approaches and address the performance of history, politics, gender, race, Indigeneity, technology and the environment in everyday life and the arts.
