THE
PERFORMANCE
AGENCY


The Performance Agency is dedicated to the curation and productio of site-specific performance formats. Since its initiation in 2017, it has been informed by the artistic esprit of the avant-gardes at the origins of performance art. In a firm belief in the transformative powers of art, The Performance Agency lives in a continuation of their energies—uniting artists from all fields to create collective spaces of experience.
