FEAR: a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, anxiety, phobia, apprehension, unease, insecurity, chaos, death, humiliation…. Whether the threat is real or imagined, the feeling or condition of being afraid.
“I’m intimidated by the fear of being average.” ‑Taylor Swift
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” ‑Franklin D. Roosevelt
“There are two kinds of fears: rational and irrational- or in simpler terms, fears that make sense and fears that don’t.” ‑Lemony Snicket
The Performance Laboratory is an interdisciplinary performance series established in March 2011. Encouraging original works and the exploration of new ideas, The Performance Laboratory aims to facilitate impassioned dialogue around the possibilities that lie within performance. Our goal is to offer a consistent forum for ideas to be shared and developed, new artistic partnerships to be made, and a supportive and diverse community to gather.
