Curated by Peter Dobill and Phoenix Lights, the 2011 Maximum Perception Festival will take place over two nights and showcase 17 national and international performance artists, focusing on presenting a dynamic range of contemporary performance practice from the best emerging artists in performance.
Maximum Perception will feature newly commissioned performance works in addition to site-specific actions and ongoing projects from all participating artists.
