Performance Review is a platform for critical and creative engagement with performance art.

Based in Melbourne, we publish monthly articles about Australian performance art and dance. We also publish articles on international performance for the purpose of providing broader context.

Performance Review is a dedicated space for the development of discursive and experimental writing about live art. Our aim is to expand the ways we relate to performance art through writing.

We support new voices and innovative approaches.


Performance Review acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which we operate. We pay our respects to their Elders; past, present and emerging and recognise that sovereignty was never ceded.
