British Library Sound Archive recording and documentation of Potentials of Performance events (26-27 October 2012). This third themed year of the Performance Matters project features a vibrant series of commissions exploring and exploding the dialogue as a potential format for thinking through and testing possible futures. Civic Zones is an act of collective mapping manifested in multiple forms: a cartographic archive of sites of potentiality, future actions and disjointed civic spaces. Drawing on a dialogue and experience of the current struggles in Greece, Gigi Argyropoulou and Hypatia Vourloumis explore how civic spaces are constituted and examine notions of disobedience, occupancy and public space through a series of collective contexts.
