Visual culture is in a state of radical flux and change and is marked by a shift to new ground beyond familiar, interdisciplinary practices. The dissolving of boundaries between formerly discrete fields, and the recognition of their influence upon one another has evolved into a culture of performance ‘un-led’ by discreet disciplines, ie. un-disciplined performance practices. Within the current global economic and environmental climate, the pace of technological developments and the race for change, it seems appropriate to seek to invest in a future of performance practice that might support, challenge and develop a wider arts audience and community. Brighton and Hove has a unique climate of performance practitioners whose work readily straddles disciplines, and whilst there is a cultural infrastructure that supports these developments, there is no distinctive, intensive contemporary performance festival that showcases radical ‘un-disciplined’ performance practices.
