MPS

Micro Performance Series (MPS)

Micro Performances ask the audience, which is rarely more than 20 at a time, to immerse themselves in a world of the artist’s creation. The association between audience and performer transcends more conventional forms as the two travel together in a relationship that is better described as participant and guide. These performances are not smaller versions of what would normally be larger productions, these are pieces that exploit what is only possible on a smaller, more intimate scale.

Micro Performance is an emerging global trend proliferating in many forms, from theatre and dance to new media, live art and interactive technology.  While encompassing many different types of artists, what brings them together is how each project prizes depth of experience above all.

Each year, Boca del Lupo presents the Micro Performance Series (MPS).  Centred on and around Granville Island, these productions are created and performed by local, national and international artists working across disciplines in intimate and small scale forms.
