ABOUT NATIVE STRATEGIES
Native Strategies is a network of performance art makers, producers and critical thinkers who seek to invigorate and make globally visible Los Angeles’s performance art community. NS are engaged in a 5 YEAR STUDY (2011 – 2016) of LA performance modalities through the creation of 10 differently themed PERFORMANCE SERIES and 10 uniquely designed JOURNALS, resulting in a book. The writers and visual artists seek to distill what ideas are urgent to the participating artists and to experiment with how the production of a document is in itself a performance.
