For this eighth edition, RIPA – rencontre interuniversitaire de performance actuelle will take place on May 30th and 31st 2019 at the Darling Foundry. The event will unfold in two stages: on the first day there will be a performance evening honouring eleven emerging artists from university networks as well as Victoria Stanton stepping in as this year’s mentor artist, both accompanying the others while also presenting a new work on the same evening. The following day there will be a discussion panel addressing current themes in performance art.

The discussion panel will offer a space to reflect on performative practices and will allow for conversations regarding the interventions presented the evening prior. This year’s panel will be divided into two thematic parts: “Vital Space” and “Social Space”.

RIPA- rencontre interuniversitaire de performance actuelle is an annual non-profit event run by volunteer students whose aim is to promote the emerging performative practices from the Quebec university system and neighbouring areas. RIPA wishes to develop Quebec’s performance networks by fostering exchanges between students, audiences and the art community.
