UK Performance Design 2019-2023
Editors: Kathrine Sandys & Lucy Thornett
hello stranger: National exhibition of performance design 2019–2023 is about welcoming designers, makers and audiences back as the performance sector recovers from the instability brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. In the wake of a turbulent few years, the project emphasizes opportunities to gather together and share experiences. This catalogue is part one of a three-part series mapping the hello stranger project, through national and regional events in spring 2023 and concluding with international events as the UK representation at the Prague Quadrennial 2023. The work in the catalogue is the result of an open call to designers. It has been curated to chronicle the diverse ways in which performance design has been realised in and beyond the UK from 2019 to 2023.
