Event description
EXCHANGE 1 of a three-day virtual mini-conference hosted by the Performance-as-Research Working Group

About this Event

In light of Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent cancellation of this year’s annual conference for the International Federation of Theatre Research (FIRT/IFTR), the Performance-as-Research Working Group will be hosting a three-day virtual mini-conference over Zoom (a total of 6 online hours over two weeks). Amid the abrupt interruptions and tumultuous, potentially transformative change that is currently challenging so very many firmly established expectations, attitudes, beliefs and behaviours, we offer these gatherings as opportunities to continue ongoing discourse among group members, with a focus on notions, theories, provocations and reflections on ‘continuit(ies)’ in arts practice.

EXCHANGE 1: Continuities

A General Panel in response to the theme, including four members of the PaR Working Group:

Annette Arlander (University of Helsinki); Natalia Esling (University of British Columbia); Priyanka Pathak (Jawaharlal Nehru University) & Johnmichael Rossi (University of Northampton)

Moderated by Bruce Barton (University of Calgary)

Any queries should be addressed to the PaR Working Group Conveners:

Bruce Barton, Manola Gayatri & Johnmichael Rossi
