Emergency Performance Festival
Emergency Performance Festival showcases and celebrates new performance work by Peterborough-area artists. For over 20 years, Public Energy has made the Emergency Festival the cornerstone of our commitment to support local artists in the creation of new work. Emergency not only engages local audiences and artists, it also creates lasting collaborative partnerships with individuals and community groups. More than 200 artists have premiered new works through Emergency; many of those have later developed into more extensive pieces with longer lives.
