After a summer break, PULSAR‘s Trouble Performing podcast is back, with a roundtable discussion on current events and ideas in performance art.

Hosted by Tif Robinette and Ian Deleón, the podcast was recorded on August 6th, and was joined by ARC Magazine‘s Holly Bynoe, artists Polina Porras Sivolobova, Ming Liu, Huisi He, Olivia Coffey, and I.

During the nearly two hour discussion, we talk about recent performances by the featured artists, and we explore topics such as the recent Tempting Failure Performance Art and Noise Art festival in London, the work of Nicola Hunter, Kamil Guenatri, Esther Neff, the nature of performances done on the street, and how performances with personal meanings can relate to the public.
