PPL gathers itself around ideological structures, modes of production, and dialogics via the mediums of social performance and performance projection. Embracing forms of non-autonomous interactivity, embodying states which practice groundswell, grassroots, conversation, demonstration, and theorization, the entity remains unbounded by discipline, field, or any other empiric realities, as such, while operating critically as part of many.
A time-based schema of durational practice roughly follows: 1.) research processes researched via research—form always TBA 2.) discourses performed as performances—Focus Workshops, interviews, conferences, panels and roundtables 3.) formalization of experience into codified cultural dialogics –collaborative rehearsal processes and social arts practices 4.) performance projections of art attempted in theoretical modeling as process—performance art and opera.
Each of the modes comprised by these procedural practices emphasizes social performance processes which historicize, enculturate, analyze, theorize, and make meaning from the meat of materiality and the somatic psychoses of consciousness.
Projects are lead by Esther Neff and Brian McCorkle with a flexible collective of ongoing and project-based collaborators.
