PRECEDENTS.

MAB has been informed by other projects, historical precedents: Examples of mobile performance spaces from various cultures and histories. The following list is a curated set of examples that the MAB Team studied. Importantly, most of the precedents focus on a single type of performing art. MAB will allow the performing arts and environmental advocacy community to share a single platform, and program the future of Milwaukee’s waterways.
