The SBC is happy to co-sponsor the PULSE residency Scenographies of site-writing and critical spatial practices across the Americas curated by Shauna Janssen and Adela Goldbard.


This intensive five day residency will explore scenography as a lens and method for undertaking critical performance-making practices in urban environments. The PULSE Residency is in collaboration with Hemispheric Encounters: Developing Transborder Research-Creation Practices, which brings together scholars, artists, activists, and community organizations from across the Americas to explore hemispheric performance as a methodology, a pedagogical strategy, and as a tool for social change.


One of the goals of the collaboration is to understand and critically engage with unsettling dominant western and colonial ways of being in and understanding space, and thinking about and exchanging different methods of doing that: through site-writing and performance practices, performative writing about site, within and in relation to site.

This residency has been made possible with the support of the Concordia Research Chair in Performative Urbanism, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, 4th Space, the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society & Culture, Concordia, and SBC Gallery, Montreal.
