The most complete gathering of performance art ever mounted at the MAC, EMERGE will offer a stimulating encounter among theatre, visual arts, and body art, highlighting the pluridisciplinary nature of the most tantalizing current practices. A series of panels and lectures will accompany the event to complement the program of works presented.
