Contemporary Performance Almanac 2013

We published our first book called the Contemporary Performance Almanac 2013. Thank you to all the artists involved. The book turned out to be a mammoth 770 pages and 4 pounds! Below is a video flip through of the book. You can also purchase a copy below the video.



Contemporary Performance Almanac 2013 is an overview of contemporary performance presented during the 2012/2013 season available for touring now. So often presenters, artists and audiences do not have access to the work of artists that are outside the touring circuit. Contemporary Performance sees a need to give access to members of the field to find each other and start new working relationships. Inside the pages of the Almanac are the artworks accompanied by full page black and white images and described by the artists in their own words: eloquent, challenging, provocative and urgent. Buy the book here-->
