In this article, Tom Sellar begins to define the mercurial role of the performance curator that has been emerging at the intersections of theatrical practice and the visual arts and their presentation. By linking the burgeoning prominence of curators with “a desire for strengthened discourse” in the presentation of contemporary performance, he points to the affinities that performance curation maintains with dramaturgy and criticism, even as the role stakes a claim to greater institutional and creative power.
