Season Theme 2014-2015: CENSORSHIP and INHIBITION

Live performance is perennially, historically, a “cultural third rail” in struggles over expression, image and public record. Censorship of performance has been present and effective in all democracies (including contemporary forms) as surely as it has been crucial to dictatorships and monarchies. Whether in explicit, state-sponsored forms of suppression or through subtler pressures—zoning, permits, financial hurdles, threat, introjects that inhibit expression—the censorship of live art is central to all cultural history. This season’s productions re-present performances that were censored or that take censorship on. Resist the silence!
