The Performance and Space Salon will be facilitated by:

Joanna K. Donehower is a Seattle-born playwright, dramaturg, and graduate student whose current research and creative work stages spatial consciousness as a dialectical encounter of competing discourses, inhabiting the limen between mythology and materiality and trading in familiar and forgotten histories.

Shauna Janssen’s doctoral project focuses on documenting the reoccupation and adaptive reuse of post-industrial sites for cultural activities. Drawn to the power and affect of urban sites undergoing transformation, she examines the potential interim urban landscapes have to stage.

Rébecca Lavoie works in fields of Political Thought (of body/space), Performance Studies and art & sexuality, she seeks to tackle the notion of trace and is specifically working on questions such as performativity/bodies/space-time/Law/queer and liminal spaces and parody.

Taien Ng-Chan is a writer, multidisciplinary artist, and PhD student who investigates the poetics and forms of experimental documentary and fiction, urban life, and city transportation.
