Performing the World (PTW) is a biannual conference and a global community of hundreds of “performance activists” from all over the globe who are exploring the power of performance and play to re-imagine and re-create the world. The PTW community creatively engages social problems, educates, heals and activates others, to bring new social-cultural-psychological and political possibilities into existence.
The global pandemic has forced us to postpone Performing the World 2020 until sometime in 2021 (we hope!). However, the

are innovators and improvisors and we know that the world needs play, performance and development more than ever. So, we’ve created a way to bring online some of the incredible energy, talent and passion that the PTW 2020 call for proposals generated.
This summer, the East Side Institute is producing “Performing the World 2020 Happening(s)” virtually. Every Weekend between July 25 and August 30, we’ll be presenting 90-minute sessions of PTW via Zoom.
