In her earliest attempts in the world of performance, Ann Carlson already fostered an attraction toward unusual sites. After her Western university experience and after being able to perform with Meredith Monk during the 1980s, Carlson was able to establish her own performances, which ranged from small to large scales. Her work is drawn from various theater, performance, choreography, and public and conceptual art principles, and is often organized with a series format as it is usually project-based. While categorizing theater work and site work may be problematic, as Carlson prefers to refer to all of these as work, she articulated that she loved the opportunity for a passerby to just “stumble” upon something unexpected compared to intentionally visiting the theater.
