Collapsible content


The "Atlas of Performing Culture" is a comprehensive exploration of more than 120 organizations worldwide, revealing how nearly every human expression involves performing culture.

Spanning five continents—Asia, Africa, Europe, Oceania, and the Americas—the atlas studies venues and events related to performance as a dynamic and unrepeatable mode of artistic activity.

The book is organized into five thematic sections focusing on physical spaces, venues, and event typologies. From island museums in Japan to the Rio Carnival, Brussels theatrical debuts, British countryside rave parties, and a former funeral home turned cultural center in Paris, the atlas showcases the diverse and unique experiences of performing art.

Breaking down traditional boundaries between performance art, visual art, and performing arts, this volume invites readers on a global journey to major cultural sites and performative experiences. It provides overviews of leading cultural organizations and highlights similar international institutions, making it an engaging resource for specialists, practitioners, academics, and art enthusiasts alike.
