The Mobilize Performance Series presents international performance artists at Mobius, often with a lecture or workshop component. It was initiated in 2003 by Jamie McMurry as a collaboration between Mobius, Inc. and the Performance Area of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The series continues, produced by different members of Mobius Artist Group, and in collaboration with other institutions in the USA and Canada.
