Emergency #22 showcases and celebrates new performance work by Peterborough-area artists. For 20+ years, Public Energy has made the Emergency Festival the cornerstone of its support for local artists creating new work. More than 200 performance works have been premiered through Emergency; many of those have developed into full-length pieces by the area’s best contemporary dance, theatre, and interdisciplinary artists. Artists showcased in Emergency are chosen in two ways: through a curatorial selection process and through an open call.
