The Performance Agency unites artists from all fields to create performative experiences. We work with innovative live artists who cross the boundaries between fine art, music, dance and performance, exploring the dialogue between these genres. As a production studio, we develop performance projects from their initial concept to their creative fruition, and work closely with third party collaborators on every level of production.
Founded by Yael Salomonowitz in 2017 in Berlin, The Performance Agency has been informed by the Fluxus movement since its initiation. Upon invitation by Supportico Lopez, The Performance Agency curated the public program of Archivio Conz in Berlin in its first two years, working with contemporary artists who engaged with the material of Francesco Conz’ vast collection of works by avant-garde movements of the 20th century. Through this collaboration, The Performance Agency evolved in direct dialogue with our own historical inspiration and developed one of our signature formats, the Mass: an ensemble of carefully staged performances, arranged within an overall storytelling in order to allow the audience to traverse a world of imagination. Since then we have realised a vast number of nomadic projects - moving the audience through churches or along river beds - and drawing our attention to the in-between, in a continuous attempt to make immersive experiences widely accessible.
We now have studios in Paris, Vienna and Geneva, in addition to Berlin.
