Coffee and Concepts

“Good conversation is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after,” says a not-too-ancient proverb.

This spring, we are happy to have you for coffee and conversation at the Center for Performance Studies. Coffee and Concepts is a series of colloquium-style, informal gatherings where scholars from across campus who work in the field of performance (broadly conceived) will be presenting new work and work in progress. Come and share the pleasure to be their first listeners and readers.
