After 20 years with PME-ART, co-artistic director Jacob Wren felt he should mark the occasion with something special—so he wrote a book. In keeping with the collective’s practice, Authenticity Is a Feeling blurs the lines between several genres: personal memoir, official history, manifesto… In the end, Wren and his co-conspirators decided to turn this book about performance into a performance itself. Thus we have this User’s Guide—an artist’s talk of sorts, but one that tilts toward the unconventional end of the spectrum.

Wren speaks to the audience, displays photos, plays music, dances and even disrobes; the goal is to entertain, to inform, to make a case for the relevance and value of performance art as a mode of resistance—as something that can make a difference in this troubled world.
