The pages of Emergency INDEX are open to all who work with performance. In each annual volume, contributors document works made in the previous year.

Each volume features a comprehensive index of key terms used by contributors in describing and discussing their own work. Begun in 2011, INDEX is a lens for seeing the field of contemporary performance from the ground up.
INDEX Vol. 7 presents 260 works from 51 countries performed during 2017, documented in the words of their creators.
